26:50 – Alicia Partnoy, International PEN

Tim (one half of World of Good) has contributed this piece to 26:50, a celebration of fifty years of the International PEN Writers in Prison Committee. Fifty UK-based writers (members of the writers' group 26) were given 50 words to write about one of Pen's emblematic cases – authors who have been persecuted for their words and actions. Tim was asked to write about the Argentine writer Alicia Partnoy. Take a look here for more 50-word pieces... 26-50.tumblr.com and there's more on Alicia at www.internationalpen.org.uk/index.cfm?objectid=225BE0C2-3... and on this remarkable family site www.nmartproject.net/partnoy/portrait.htm
