  • June 4 – English publication of For a Song and a Hundred Songs: A Poet's Journey through a Chinese Prison by Liao Yiwu, recounting Yiwu's time following the Tiananmen Square protests of June 4, 1989, and the four brutal years he spent in jail for writing the poem "Massacre".[1][2]
  • August 5 – PEN International's Writers in Prison Committee (WiPC) issues a call to action, demanding that the jailed 60-year-old Kazakh poet Aron Atabek be released from solitary confinement, where he has been since December 2012 and where he will continue to stay until the end of 2014. This is his punishment for writing The Heart of Eurasia, a blunt critique of President Nursultan Nazarbayev and his government.[3] Atabek is currently serving an 18-year prison sentence for other alleged crimes against the state.[4]
  • September 13 – Australians Graham Nunn and Andrew Slattery are accused of plagiarism over separate works which they have published.[5]

  • September 22 – In the United Kingdom, poet C. J. Allen withdraws from the Forward Prize shortlist after admitting to plagiarism in some of his earlier work. He has been nominated in the category for "best single poem." Fellow poet Matthew Welton says he noticed last year that Allen had plagiarised some of his work.[9][10]
