PEN-Myanmar: Letter of Honor and Encouragement

PEN Myanmar

Dear Aron Atabek,
Greetings from PEN Myanmar!
PEN Myanmar is one of PEN International’s centers located in Southeast Asia. We focus mainly on Protecting freedom of expression and Promoting new literature, the same activities as the other PEN centers do. PEN Myanmar has over 200 members and lead by 9 members of Director Board. 3 of 9 Directors were once imprisoned writers like you. We learned about you from PEN International website and we published an article mentioned about you in our PEN Myanmar News Letter.
PEN Myanmar would like to express our sympathy and living-kindness regarding your imprisonment. We are very proud of you and greatly impressed on your work. We are sorry to hear that you are weak at health. During these difficult times, please don’t forget that there are friends and colleagues who remember you in their prayers. Wishing you strong and healthy.

PEACE be with you, dear Aron Atabek.
