Poets, authors, painters, sculptors, musicians, actors, choreographers, dancers, makers of art in all forms
The Cape Canaveral Branch was founded in 1969 by Dr. Elaine Murray Stone (Music, Letters), an accomplished author and musician. Since then, we have provided members and non-members with educational, creative, and professional support through programs and outreach activities.
We meet monthly between September and May to encourage one another, support local charities, and participate in local creative events.

At Cape Canaveral Pen Women, our mission is to promote and support local artists in all forms of arts. We believe in the power of art to inspire, heal, and bring communities together. Our Branch Board of Directors include writer and artist members who have a passion for this support and promotion.
The National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW), the oldest arts organization for women in the United States, is a nonprofit with 82 branches, 20 State Associations, and many Members-at-Large. Since it was founded in 1897, when women were not permitted to join all-male associations, the League’s mission has been to support and promote creative excellence and professional standards among women in the arts. We are a community of more than 1,600 professional artists, writers, poets, composers, and arrangers who believe in the power of words, art, and music to illuminate the human experience, fire the imagination, and nourish the soul. The core values of the NLAPW are respect, knowledge, creation and preservation of the arts.
