World Press Freedom Celebration Open Mic

World Press Freedom Day 2019 Banner

Join Drexel PEN Society and Drexel University’s students and faculty in celebrating and recognizing World Press Freedom Day! For this open mic event, we will be reading excerpts of important journalistic and literary pieces that emphasize the importance of the free press, culminating in the reading of PEN America’s Press Freedom Manifesto, which we hope will serve to inspire and unite writers across all genres at in support of journalism as a vital form of storytelling.

This event is organized by Harriet Levin Millan, Director of the Certificate Program in Writing and Publishing and Associate Teaching Professor of English at Drexel University.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Harriet Levin Millan, Drexel PEN Society Faculty Advisor, millanhl@drexel.edu, and Jill Moses, Department of English and Philosophy, jm378@drexel.edu
