We assist imprisoned or otherwise persecuted writers internationally through campaigns combining public awareness and quiet diplomacy. We also work to ensure that those responsible for the deaths of writers are brought to justice. At home, we provide opportunities for writers in exile to find a place within Canadian society and monitor issues of censorship. PEN Canada is a registered charity. contents 1 Foreword 2 Introduction: Because Writers Speak Their Minds 8 PEN International President’s Message 10 President’s Message 18 Writers in Prison Committee Report 20 Honorary Members 30 Honorary Members Released 36 National Affairs Committee Report 40 Membership Committee Report 42 Members and Supporters PEN CANADA 2
