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
Our six-week Literary Takeover is a winter festival that celebrates female writers and challenges accepted perceptions of the literary canon. The Takeover stages a transformation of our brand new, state-of-the-art gallery, one that is intended to make visitors reconsider their assumptions about how the written word can be experienced within a physical space. Visit our Events Page for more info. on our series of readings, panels, and discussions.Events Publications
