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:

"Nothing is so beautiful as spring—       
  When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush…

“Spring,” Gerard Manley Hopkins


Spring is on its way. Have you seen the crocus shoots on the hill by the Second Congregational Church on Putnam Avenue? They are about to reveal themselves in a profusion of color. And we at Greenwich Pen Women are also showing our colors in a profusion of creativity, as you will see in member news. And we have more to celebrate this month, when we come together for “The Art of the Memoir” on March 16. At that event, Joan Montoya, contributing editor at the New York Times, will share her writing experiences and our own Arlene Mark will talk about the book, Rescuing Memories, a collection that came to be when she and two friends, including Judy Crystal, got together to share and to write. That effort resulted in the publication of their book. Event details are included in this month’s Calendar.


President Deb Weir and Vice President Marcia Hamilton
