Branch President


Cape Canaveral Pen Women is a branch of the Florida State Association of The National League of American Pen Women, Inc. (FSA/NLAPW), a nonprofit umbrella organization that provides support to all Florida Pen Women. We are comprised of professional women who are artists, authors, and composers. Cape Canaveral Pen Women conduct community outreach activities to promote all aspects of art, music, and writing. We give one scholarship a year to a deserving young woman studying art, music, or letters.


Located on Florida’s Space Coast, the Canaveral branch is governed by a president, a treasurer, and a secretary. Prospective members must meet certain professional requirements which are found on the National web site:

Canaveral Pen Women meet monthly from September to May at various locations. In April, we hold our annual scholarship luncheon, and in December we enjoy a non-business get-together to celebrate the end-of-year holidays and collect toys and gifts for the Hacienda Girls Ranch.

The newly elected 1016-2018 Board Secretary Gail Fay (l)  President Marion Coste (c) and Treasurer Mia Crews (r)
