About Pen Parentis

We provide resources to writers to help them stay on creative track after starting a family. 

Pretty simple, right?

At Pen Parentis, Ltd, our goal is to inspire
and aid the production high-quality fiction by a segment of the writing community that often grows discouraged or even abandons their career altogether.

Pen Parentis needs your support! We are a 501c3 and any donations you make are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. However, when you donate through this website, your credit card/bank statement will read DEPOSIT A GIFT, so please print and save the receipt you will receive from Pen Parentis, Ltd for tax purposes.

Funds will be used to maintain our annual Fellowship, continue to run a series of inspiring monthly Literary Salons in NYC and occasionally in Los Angeles featuring the diversity of creative work by authors who are also parents, and to maintain online communities where writers who are also parents can discuss their unique situations --all to help writers stay on creative track after starting a family.
