Silver PEN Partners

Silver PEN Partners are individuals, companies and organisations drawn from within the publishing industry, media, legal, financial and other professions whose commitment to freedom of expression, literacy, language and literature is such that they want to make sure that English PEN can continue its important work now and into the future.


The support of our Silver PEN Partners is vital to sustain English PEN’s mission to promote the freedom to write and the freedom to read in the UK and around the world.  Through an annual contribution, the partners provide funds that enable us to sustain and develop our programmes.

Our current Silver PEN Partners include Canongate, Hachette UK, HarperCollins, Faber & Faber, Foyles, the London Book Fair, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster and Vice News.
