Pen and Brush is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a platform for women in the literary and visual arts by showcasing high-quality, professional work. We believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit – not judged by the gender of the maker.Our Vision Donate
