Sarasota Pen Women are creative souls — writers, artists, photographers, musicians, composers, and other creative adventurers in the arts. We are members of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW), which is the oldest multi-discipline arts organization for women in America, founded in 1897 in Washington, DC. The Sarasota Branch of NLAPW (Sarasota Pen Women) was founded in 1957. Members meet monthly from October through April, working to fulfill the NLAPW objectives to “encourage, recognize and promote” creative work of its members and to reach out to the Sarasota community.
Today, NLAPW promotes and conducts literary, educational, and charitable activities in the fields of Letters, Art and Music. The mission remains to encourage, recognize and promote the production of creative work of professional standard in the fine arts. Our official League Headquarters in the Pen Arts Building, part of the DuPont Historical District in Washington, D.C. Our archives chronical the legacy of the illustrious members, such as Vinnie Ream, Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, Amy Beach, Georgia O’Keeffe, Grandma Moses, Erma Bombeck, Maya Angelou, Rosalyn Carter, Hillary Clinton, and Eudora Welty.
