The Cape Canaveral Pen Women branch is located in Brevard County, Florida, home of the nation’s space program. A membership of professional artists, writers and composers, this organization is one of 21 affiliated branches in Florida.
Our by-laws were signed on April 9, 1969 by the branch’s first executive board led by president Elaine Murray Stone. The most important reason for joining is the personal encouragement, contacts and educational benefits gained from association with professional peers.Members promote development of the creative talents of professional women in one or more of three comprehensive membership classifications: Letters, Art, and Music.
