PEN WORLD VOICES FESTIVAL -- Volunteering Opportunity
PEN World Voices is America’s only international literary festival, attracting the best known writers from across the globe. Since its founding, PEN America has presented more than 1,500 writers and artists from 118 countries speaking 56 languages in venues across New York City in a weeklong series of literary events with a human rights focus. The Festival was founded by Salman Rushdie, Esther Allen, and Michael Roberts in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, with the aim of broadening channels of dialogue between the United States and the world—a mission that, today, has never been more relevant.

The 2017 World Voices Festival: Gender & Power used literature and the arts as a lens to examine how gender both enables and impairs full participation in politics and society. At a moment of unprecedented threats to freedom and truth—and of emboldened mobilization and resistance—the Festival brought together authors and artists from around the world with concerned citizens to examine bigotry, misogyny, and xenophobia, and to bolster the movement to counter them. Featuring Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Carrie Brownstein, Samantha Bee, Teju Cole, Ani DiFranco, Jennifer Egan, Aleksandar Hemon, Colum McCann, Nancy Morejón, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Trevor Noah, Salman Rushdie, Patti Smith, Andrew Solomon, Binyavanga Wainaina, and many more.

The 2018 World Voices Festival, which will run April 16—22, promises to be just as exciting! Stay tuned for more details to come.
