“The pen is mightier than the sword”
(Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1839)
Or is it?
The Perth PEN Centre is one of 150 centres worldwide and the international organisation will soon celebrate its centenary. But what is an organisation named after a pen? And just what does it do? Why does it have a place in Perth?
Please come along to an open discussion with Dennis Haskell and Krishna Sen about these questions. Marcella Polain will then share some of PEN’s writers in prison work and some brief details about writers in prison currently supported by PEN International.
