“I like your interest in sports… Sports take people out of doors, get them filled with oxygen—generate some of the brutal customs (so-called brutal customs) which, after all, tend to habituate people to a necessary physical stoicism.” —Walt Whitman

 

PEN New England is a chapter of PEN American Center, part of a global association of writers celebrating literature and defending free expression.

We make our home at the MIT School of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences.
