About

Declarations is an anthology of prose and poetry where some of Scotland’s finest writers explore the importance of language, identity and freedom of expression. Today’s event is sponsored by Scottish PEN and features readings and conversation with Jenni Calder, Lizzie Eldridge, Miriam Vaswani, and Rosemary Hector.

Founded in 1927, Scottish Pen is one of 153 centres of PEN International. This worldwide association of writers works to defend those who speak truth to power, and promotes human rights for all. In 2021 Scottish PEN’s campaign to reform defamation laws saw the Scottish Parliament pass new legislation to protect free expression and fair comment.
