Welcome to PEN Transmissions, a new online zine dedicated to international writing. This is a digital home for some of the best writers around the world.
Each month, PEN Transmissions will bring you a brand new issue packed with original writing and interviews. Issues One and Two are now available to read in full.
Our first issue responds to Kamila Shamsie’s prompt to turn 2018 into the Year of Publishing Women. We asked four writers to write about what it means to them to be a writer in the current climate.
Our second issue questions what happens after a political crisis. From Egypt and Eritrea to the UK, US and Poland, the responses are hopeful, thoughtful and, occasionally, angry.
