PEN International Magazine
The Writer Next Door’
PEN International Vol. 58 No. 1
The first issue of 2008 takes its cue from International PEN’s annual literary theme, The Writer Next Door. Expect writing from unexpected places - 96 pages of stories, poems, essays and more by Alberto Manguel, Chantal Montellier, Alexis Wright, Alain Mabanckou, Azar Nafisi, André Gorz and many more. This issue also introduces ‘Found in Translation’, a new feature made possible by the generous support of Bloomberg, in which works will appear in translation for the first time in English, French or Spanish.
Forthcoming in September 2008: Context: Latin America and the Caribbean
The latest issue in the ‘Context:’ series featuring contemporary writing from around the world will spotlight new and established writers from Mexico down to the tip of Chile, as well as those based outside Latin America and the Caribbean who have written on these regions. If you would like to contribute, we would love to hear from you! The deadline for submissions is 18 July 2008. Please see the International PEN website for writing and submission guidelines.
