Exiled Writers Ink works to promote the creative literary expression of refugees and exiles and to encourage cross-cultural dialogue. It provides a platform for the work of writers living in exile in the UK and mainland Europe through performance, publishing and training activities. We believe that the literature, art and culture of exile can provide a focus for communication and integration throughout society, and act as a force for positive change. EWI is a non-political organisation that advocates human rights through literature and literary activism.

Exiled Writers Ink was formally established in 2000 and is a registered charity.
