Day of the Imprisoned Writer

  • November 15: International Day of the Imprisoned Writer

    By Miles Kenyon

    From Nelson Mandela to Martin Luther King Jr, some of the world’s greatest political activists have been both writers and prisoners, with each part of this dual identity equally fueling the other. Today marks the Day of the Imprisoned Writer, a day created to draw stark attention to all those who have sacrificed their freedom because they have chosen to speak out against injustices in their society. Today is about recognition, action and change.
