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.Donate Our Vision
After 122 years of supporting women's literature in New York, Pen and Bush has launched an in-house writing circle. We bring women's writing to the world by bringing the world's editors to them, and now we want to bring you into our cozy new space for the time and community your project deserves.
This summer, Pen + Brush is teaming up with experts in both the visual and literary arts to bring our readers a guest blogger series focused on insights, advice and information that will help artists and writers take their work and their careers to the next level.
