The League promotes
and conducts literary, educational, and charitable activities in the
fields of Letters, Art, and Music. It encourages the production of
creative work in these areas and provides its members with literary,
educational and inspirational material through The Pen Woman. It also
maintains a mature woman's scholarship fund to aid and encourage
professional development. In addition, it honors the accomplishments of
its members through competitions and biennial awards.
noteworthy are opportunities for members of all ages and degrees of
experience to gain enriching perspectives from the multi-faceted
activities and achievements of their colleagues. Of constant benefit is
the interaction of The League members with one another in a spirit of
mutual support, camaraderie, and personal and collective advancement.
