Past Events


The Writers for Peace Committee, with its headquarters at the Slovene PEN Centre, was founded 1984 at one such annual conference in Piran. Nowadays a five day meeting is organised every May by the Slovene PEN centre within the framework of the International Writers' Conference at Lake Bled in Slovenia. Panel discussions and literary evenings have also been held in Bled, Piran and Ljubljana, at which representatives of 35 PEN centres led by the Writers for Peace Committee and other interested writers discuss their views on the armed conflicts in different regions of the world.

In 2006 some 40 international (eg Portuguese author Casimir de Brito, the Greek Anastassis Vistonitis) and 30 Slovene writers met at the lakeside resort of Bled between 29 March and 2 April for a meeting organised by the Slovene PEN Centre. The authors focused on the role of PEN and the role of literature in an increasingly globalised world. A round table entitled 'Globalisation of the World - Marginalisation of Literature' was organised. One of the debates revolved around the title 'Freedom of Expression as a Means against Terrorism'. The programme also included a presentation by the Croatian poet Sibila Petlevski.
