Established in 1967 by the Slovene PEN Centre, the International PEN Writers' Meeting was first set at Piran, then at the lakeside resort of Bled, making it the oldest annual regional conference within the framework of the International PEN.

Its 41st annual meeting was organised in March 2009 and gathered some 60 writers from 25 different countries. The debate focused on freedom, the role of culture and media in processes that led to independence of nations or other historic events, and on the role of female literary characters in achieving peace. The Peace Committee paid special attention to problems in the Middle East and Tibet. The 42nd meeting in 2010 featured roundtables on Globalisation: an opportunity for all or a new colonisation for many, Literature and Globalisation, and Peace between diurnal and nocturnal dreams.
