This series will bring to Lancaster writers who have been imprisoned or persecuted for their writings, or who have used their writing in the interests of social and political liberty.

As well as working with writers, we plan to collaborate with human rights and writers’ organisations such as Amnesty International and International PEN.  The aim of the series is to promote debate around fundamental issues of human liberty through the agency of creative and critical writings.  The third event in the series will be followed by a one-day interdisciplinary Conference, drawing on the postgraduate community of creative writing students, based both overseas and at Lancaster.
