Partnering with the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Pen Parentis would like to invite all AWP16 attendees as well as any writers who live in the greater LA area who are parents to a meet-up at the fabulous gLAnce bar in the lobby of the  JW Marriot at LA Live on Thursday, March 31 from 5:30 – 7:00pm. No cover charge and no minimum purchase necessary–we want maximum attendance! Cash bar.  The directors of both nonprofits (Caroline Grant and Milda M. De Voe) will be hosting: mingling, answering your questions, and talking about opportunities for parents who are also writers: do you know there are colonies that will pay for child care? fellowships exclusively for parents? Join us — we understand that keeping a writing career going while you balance the needs of your kids shows dedication to your art. We value your efforts. Come celebrate with us.
