Ex Tempore is the literary journal published annually by the United Nations Society of Writers (UNSW)/ Societé des écrivains des Nations Unies (SENU) in Geneva.


The Society of Writers was founded on Friday, 14 August 1989 by Sergio Chaves (Argentina, 1931-2015+), Leonor Sampaio (Brazil) and Alfred de Zayas (USA).



Over a capuccino (renversé) at the Press Bar of the Palais des Nations, Alfred suggested naming the proposed journal "Ex Tempore", since staff contributions should be crisp, uncomplicated, impromptu, and as far away as possible from the stale UN jargon of resolutions and reports.

We wanted to prove that we could write literature - not just bureaucratic pseudo-intellectual stuff. The most boring part of our endeavour was the drafting and amending the statutes, and getting our own issn number: ISSN 1020-6604.
