PEN WOMEN of
The National League of American Pen Women began in 1897 in Washington D.C., when a group of career women decided to organize to promote and support the development of the creative talents of professional women artists, writers, dramatists, lecturers and composers.
The Southwest Florida Branch was established in 1977 and is comprised of professional women who work in the arts, including painting, photography, pottery and jewelry, and who are published authors of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and plays.
We fund scholarships for worthy local young women desiring to further their careers in the fields of art, literature or music. We hold hundreds of awards for our work, which is displayed in galleries and libraries around the United States and in collections around the world. We support each other.
We meet once a month from November through April, generally at lunch with an educational or fun program.
