About PEN Lebanon

About Us
PEN Lebanon is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organisation that was founded in 2012 by several Lebanese writers. It undertakes to impartially defend freedom of expression and thought as specified in Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The main goal of PEN Lebanon is to promote literature and defend the freedom of speech. It also aims at encouraging young writers by conducting workshops in partnership with other institutions of learning. It works for the creation and publication of literature by all writers. It also aims at the broadening of public taste in reading. The promotion of general literacy is high on its objectives. This is achieved by offering and participating in literary readings and discussions in partnership with educational and academic institutions, public libraries and cultural clubs.
