Greenwich Pen Women, a branch of the National League of American Pen Women, is a non-profit organization of women artists, writers, and musicians. We offer mutual support and exchange of ideas to encourage and inspire excellence in original creative work.

Note from our President:

There is so much to comment on this month, I hardly know where to begin. I’ll start with our GPW April programs, both excellent and informative on very timely subjects. On April 6, Speaker, Amy Goldsmith of Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, New York City, spoke to our members and members of the community on “Protecting Your intellectual Property” at the Garden Education Center in Cos Cob. On April 26 Dr. Anca Micu, associate dean at Sacred Heart University, presented “Your Guide to Digital Marketing” at the Bush Holley Barn, Cos Cob. Both events were well attended and well received.

May is a big month for awards and honors for our members. In Member News you will read about such recognition for Marie Amoruso, Liana Moonie, Barbara O’Shea, and for Barbara Ehrentreu. In addition you will read about Roberta Seret’s grant at Grace Farms. Her plan is to invite Model UN students to view and discuss FILMeds from her UN program. To that end, she would love to hear from any members who can suggest contacts at middle and high schools who might be interested. In addition, Roberta is working with the program committee to organize an architectural tour of Grace Farms for GPW members. Plans are in the works!

Finally, a reminder to see our calendar for details about our May 12 annual meeting. See you there!

Your President,
