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:

"While it is February one can taste the full joys of anticipation. Spring stands at the gate with her finger on the latch. "
- Patience Strong

It may be February, but our members are not in the doldrums of winter. On January 10, twenty-five or so of our members enjoyed the Brian Landi program, “Using Online Tools for Website Design.” The event was received enthusiastically, leaving those in attendance eager for more such programs.

Then on January 20‚ the annual Robert Burns dinner, commemorating the birth of Robert Burns, was held at the First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich, to the delight of all, including the six Greenwich Pen Women in attendance. What better way to celebrate the 258th birthday of Scottish poet, Robert Burns? Kudos to Stasha Healy for an evening to remember.

More upcoming events are scheduled, February—May. See our calendar for details. And be sure to read about our newest member, Maria C. Friscia, an artist, whose biography is intriguing and whose work is stunning. There’s more talent on display in Member News. Enjoy this month’s reading!

With all best wishes,
Marcia and Deb
