About the Honolulu Branch

A subsidiary of the National organization, the Honolulu Branch, known as the Honolulu Pen Women, conducts and promotes creative and educational activities in Art, Letters, and Music. Honolulu Pen Women have participated in juried art shows, published their work and had it performed, and through shared artistic experience, have developed lasting friendships.

The Honolulu Pen Women gather for lively luncheon meetings once a month, usually the first Wednesday of the month, from 11:30 A M to 2:00 PM, September through May. The agenda typically consists of a short business meeting and a program by a featured speaker. Check NEXT MEETING for meeting place, menu, and guest speaker.

Non-members interested in the arts may also attend luncheon meetings, although reservations are required. If you would like to receive notices of monthly meetings by email, please click email newsletter@nlapwhonolulu.org. Your email address will only be used for this purpose.

In even-numbered years, members organize the NLAPW BIENNIAL WRITERS' CONFERENCE. These inspiring Honolulu conferences are a unique opportunity to learn from seasoned writers and published authors and are open to all interested residents and visitors.

In conjunction with the conferences, the Honolulu Branch conducts a respected literary competition: the LORIN TARR GILL WRITING COMPETITION, held in memory of writer Lorin Tarr Gill, a long-time Branch member who died in 1979. The competition is open to the public and is carried on with primary support from the Gill family.

In odd-numbered years, members organize the NLAPW BIENNIAL ART EXHIBITION. Biennial Art Shows are held at the beautiful Honolulu Country Club Art Gallery, 1690 A la Puumalu St., Honolulu HI 96818.
