PEN Emergency Fund advertisement

Advertisement for the PEN Emergency Fund. Upon being appointed vice-president of PEN International, the Dutch writer A. den Doolaard (alias of Bob Spoelstra) noticed that one element was missing from PEN’s support: the provision of material assistance. As a result, Doolaard began working on ideas for a special ‘writers-in-emergency fund’, and in January 1971 he founded the PEN Emergency Fund – an international fund based in the Netherlands. The PEN Emergency Fund supports critically persecuted writers and writers in exile with a one-off allowance to help them maintain themselves, and in many cases their families, in an emergency.

Anuncio del PEN Emergency Fund

Anuncio del PEN Emergency Fund. Habiendo sido elegido presidente de PEN Internacional, el escritor neerlandés A. den Doolaard (seudónimo de Bob Spoelstra), se dio cuenta que el apoyo de PEN a escritores era limitado: no proporcionaba ningún tipo de ayuda material. Para resolverlo, Doolaard empezó a desarrollar la idea de un fondo de emergencia para escritores y, en enero de 1971, fundó el PEN Emergency Fund; un fondo internacional gestionado en los Países Bajos. El PEN Emergency Fund apoya a escritores persegidos y en el exilio con una dotación única para mantenerse a ellos mismos, y en muchos casos, también a sus famílias, en una situación de emergencia.
