Exiled Writers Ink develops and promotes the creative literary expression of refugees, migrants and exiles, encourages cross-cultural dialogue and advocates human rights through literature and literary activism. The network provides a platform for the work of writers living in the UK and mainland Europe through performance, publishing, training and education activities. We believe that the literature and culture of exile can provide a focus for communication and integration throughout society and act as a force for positive change.
Exiled Writers Ink was formally established in 2000 and is a registered charity.
