PEN Canada Emergency Fund for Writers-in-Peril

When writers around the world find themselves in danger, they know they can come to PEN centres for help. PEN Canada receives multiple requests per year from writers-in-peril who need assistance, and the number of requests is only increasing.

This dedicated fund can be quickly mobilized to provide one-time emergency grants in three key areas:

• Transportation for writers fleeing violence
• Settlement and immigration costs
• Medical expenses related to persecution

Meeting requests for financial help is integral to the mission and vision of PEN Canada.
