As part of the IWP's "100 Words Project," writers from around the world have been invited to meditate on a given theme. This year's theme is "Peace/War." Each writer has responded to the theme by composing an original text of around 100 words. In these videos, the writers read and present their compositions aloud. American/South African poet Tony Eprile has contributed this video for the project. 100 Words is made possible through a grant from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State
