The National League of American Pen Women is a non-profit organization, made up of professional women in the arts. The object of the League is to create progression and advancement in literary work, visual arts and musical composition.
Since its founding in 1897, the League continues to seek higher mental and intellectual development, with excellent networking and friendships among members, while maintaining a high, broad standard of work, effort and strength that comes from this union.
Members share their creativity in a number of ways, including workshops, discussion groups, performances, demonstrations, and lectures. Writing and poetry contests, art exhibitions (both juried and non-juried), and music composition competitions are conducted at all levels, branch, state, and national.
