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:

"In the garden, Autumn is, indeed, the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November."

- Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden


Fall is upon us and once again our members are actively creating and sharing their art with the community and beyond, as you will note in “Member News.” And under “Calendar” you will see all we doing as a branch, including an art studio visit with Peter Arguimbau on October 11 when he will speak to us on “Luminism, Last Movement of the Renaissance.” And then on November 7, Beth Davey, literary and publishing agent, will share her vast knowledge of the industry with us at First Presbyterian Church Chapel. Many thanks to Rose Marie Anner for finding Beth for us. And many thanks to Marcia Hamilton and Catherine Stahl for all their work on our calendar as well. Many more wonderful things are planned, as you will see. We are a vibrant and active chapter, and thanks to Sally Fine, who brings us new members, we are growing. This month we welcome new Letters member, Dr. Mary V.T. Cattan, DMin, LMFT, who no doubt will be the subject of a new “Spotlight” feature soon. This month, enjoy the spotlight on new Arts member, Dana Goodfellow. Looking back, enjoy these photos of our September Meet and Greet:
