Welcome to a World of Literature

Everything you need to know about the world's great writers and emerging voices is being collected and shared on the English PEN Online World Atlas. Head over to the Atlas to create (or edit) a profile for your favourite author or book, leave a comment or contact another user, and discover your next great read. We believe that great writing has the power to change your life and change the world, one book at a time.

The Atlas is proud to be partnering with the Hay Festival's Beirut39 contest, celebrating Beirut's year as UNESCO World Book Capital, to find the hottest authors under 40 of Arabic origin. Nominations are open until August 24th, 2009.

PEN Atlas on the tanjara

Journalist Susannah Tarbush, who blogs at the tanjara, gives a shout-out to the Atlas on her blog, saying that
the site clearly has the makings of a valuable online community and resource base on Arab literature
and the blog
is gathering momentum as a useful source of news, views and links relating to Arab literature.

That's very good of them.

Next week, I'm doing a video interview for the Atlas with Sama, a young Palestinian poet and photographer.

You can see some of her work here.


I need your help with questions, Sophie.
