History

The Pen Group began in the late 1920's as a writer's workshop of the Minneapolis Branch of the American Association of University Women. The purpose of the group was: to promote creative writing by encouragement, stimulation, criticism, discipline; to share resources and market information; to encourage and invite other members of AAUW to join the group and express their feelings and experience in writing. The goals of the group are to write regularly and to sell their writing. At meetings members read their work and received criticism from members and often a professional writer.
