A night of readings hosted by Scottish Pen to mark the Day of the Imprisoned Writer. Readings of work by writers who are currently in prison and some guest readings from Scottish Pen.

The Day of the Imprisoned Writer is  intended to recognize and support writers who resist repression of the basic human right to freedom of expression This day is observed each year on November 15. It was started in 1981 by PEN International Writers in Prison Committee.

In addition to increasing the public’s awareness of persecuted writers in general, PEN uses the Day of the Imprisoned Writer to direct attention to several specific persecuted or imprisoned writers and their individual circumstances.

Scottish PEN is part of PEN International, a not-for-profit organisation that champions freedom of speech and literature across borders
