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.
August is a gentle reminder for not doing a single thing from your new year resolution for seven months and not doing it for next five.
Note from our President:
Hope you are all staying cool and creative, and enjoying the dog days of summer.
Letters members will resume critiques in September after taking a summer hiatus. Date, time, and location to come.
We’re still looking for volunteer(s) to serve on the board as Arts chair(s).
The August Arts critique is scheduled for Wednesday August 14th from 2 – 4 pm at Dana Goodfellow’s home. Karen will send out email reconfirming date and time.
Fall Meet and Greet will be held at the Silo Hill Clubhouse on Sunday, September 15 from 5 - 7 pm. Wine and light refreshments will be offered. Please invite fellow creatives who might be interested in joining Greenwich Pen Women. Thank you to Catherine Stahl for hosting us, and to Kathy DiGiovanna for designing the invitations.
Open Mic Nights - Congratulations Diane Morello, for creating the successful Greenwich Pen Women Open Mic series. The first two events, at Cos Cob Library and the Byram Shubert, were great fun, and had good community support. The final event in the series is on Monday, October 21, 7 pm at the Perrot Memorial Library, 90 Sound Beach Ave, Old Greenwich.
Greenwich Reads Together - The GRT pick for 2019 is Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Lee Paine is our liaison with Greenwich Library so please contact her if you are willing to lead a discussion on the novel. I’m also very excited to be leading a creative writing workshop at Greenwich Library as part of Penwomen outreach for GRT – Extrapolating into the future for teenagers in grades 8 - 12.
Book Discussion series - Our closing 2019 Perrot Library book discussion series discussion of City of Light, by Lauren Belfer, facilitated by Barbara Ehrentreu has been postponed to January 2020 in order to allow for Greenwich Reads Together programming.
Be sure to check out the latest member news, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
