International PEN Poem Relay — PEN Poem Relay

Celebrating Linguistic Diversity and Carrying the Torch for Freedom of Expression in China

The poem ‘June’ by imprisoned Chinese poet and journalist Shi Tao is relaying around the world, country to country, language to language, until it reaches Beijing for the Olympics in August.

PEN Centres around the world have translated ‘June’ to over 60 (and counting) of the world’s languages.

When the poem arrives at a new location, you can read and hear a new translation.

On April 17, the Olympic torch goes to New Delhi, India. The poem does too. Click on the yellow pin on New Delhi and you can read and listen to it in Hindi.
