As you all know, the next Writers in Prison Committee meeting will be held virtually, on May 20-22, in partnership with the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN).
Please find attached the list of centres attending the meeting and the actualized agenda.
For the elections, Ma Thida (PEN Myanmar) and Nadezda Azhgikhina (PEN Moscow) presented the candidatures for chairing the WiP Committee for the term 2021-2024:
Their biographies and motivation letters are attached, together with the nomination forms from three PEN centres each.
Please, make sure that you informed us about the one representative from your centre who will be the person for voting. That person will be given a link to vote on Thursday and elections will be open 24 hours during the meeting. Voting persons will receive instructions to vote in English, Spanish and French, and will be assisted for that purpose during the meeting, if necessary.
