As Words Without Borders marks our 20th anniversary in the midst of several global crises of devastating scale, we affirm the potency of our mission to amplify the literary voices that take us beyond the headlines and into the stories of our shared humanity. Literature is an opening, a space for protest, for bearing witness, and for reimagining our world. And reading beyond our borders has never been more urgent.

Help us publish literature that offers a humanizing lens on a world in crisis.
