It is with great pleasure, and a tremendous amount of pride, that we can announce that

Pen Parentis has just been awarded a Creative Engagement grant by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, with funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and New York State Council on the Arts.

While we are thrilled by the substantial grant being awarded, this is also an amazing accolade as it indicates that the City and State believe the work we are doing is valuable and that Pen Parentis Literary Salons are deserving of their support.

The formal crediting is expected to take place over the next few weeks, with profiles of all the 2017 grantees being published on the LMCC website in April. But we wanted to share this exciting news with all of you now, and take the opportunity to thank you for your continued enthusiasm, belief and support. THANK YOU!

Watch this space for details of the formalities! Oh – and make sure you sign up for the next salon on April 11th (there will be celebrating!) – link here.
