The National League of American Pen Women was founded in 1897 to promote the development of creative women in the arts. The Boca Raton Branch is the largest branch in Florida, and one of the largest in the nation.

The Boca Raton branch has long been active in the community, routinely reaching out with writing programs and contests, as well as public art shows. They develop programs with longer and more involved goals. In 2004-2005, they developed an outreach initiative with the Gateways Book Program to aid those incarcerated in the Girls Juvenile Detention Center in West Palm Beach. The branch presents monthly workshops with the girls and collects books, which helped to establish a library at the center. Another outreach program was designed to help Palm Beach County teachers by offering members’ talents and expertise in the arts for use in the classroom. These outreach programs are important not only in serving the community, but because they help the organization maintain its not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) status.

 

 

 

The branch holds program luncheon meetings the 3rd Thursday of the month, from November through May, at the Delray Beach Golf Club. Creativity workshops and exhibitions are also held at various times throughout the year for members and the general public.

 

Different levels of membership are available. For more information, go to the local branch websitewww.bocapenwomen.org
