Please note this is not a Scottish PEN event – it is part of the Edinburgh Art Festival in collaboration with PEN International.

As part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, Shilpa Gupta introduces Salil Tripathi, writer, journalist, and Chair of the PEN International Writers in Prison Committee to discuss her commission ‘For, in your tongue I cannot hide’, a piece that showcases the work of 100 poets who have been imprisoned or in some cases executed for speaking out against injustice.

The piece will be hosted at the Fire Station, Edinburgh College of Art, 26 July–26 August
