PEN Perth inducted into the world

Wednesday 24th October / presented by Mat Cal

Robert Wood from the Perth chapter of PEN International, an organisation that works with journalists being held in custody and their stories, joined Mat on the Mag on Wednesday morning.

Robert has recently returned from the 84th PEN International Congress in India where PEN Perth was inducted into PEN International. This gives them official status, allowing them to be more engaged globally as well as still thinking about responsibility and protection of writers in our own backyard. Mat and Robert discuss the work that PEN Perth do to protect the rights of writers and their work to safeguard freedom of expression and what is means for them now that they have been inducted.
