Nowadays, there are about 150-200 thousand professional writers globally, and they write in more than 150 languages. Being a writer is not easy. This profession is multifaceted and deserves deep respect. That is why International Writers' Day was once created.
Its celebration was initiated by the PEN International. This worldwide association brings together professional writers working in different genres of literature. International Writers' Day is celebrated not only by novelists, prose writers, poets, pamphleteers, publicists, science fiction writers, feuilletonists, short story writers, essayists, and other masters of the word. It is rightfully considered a professional holiday for journalists, historians, and bloggers.
On this day, they gather to discuss trends in modern literature, reward the most talented authors, listen to new poems and excerpts from their colleagues' novels.
