Celebrated since 1986, The International Writers’ Day has been proposed by the International Congress of PEN Club. Aiming to promote mutual support among writers from all over the world, this organization was formed of poets, essayists, and fictionists was founded in London in 1921 and it includes writers that approach every literary genre, from translators and journalists to historians.
