Cycle of Support
Pen Parentis believes every writer should have an equal opportunity to succeed in their creative career.
To that end, our most successful program is the Pen Parentis Cycle of Support which is made up of three efforts:
We are actively seeking to train new Meetup Leaders. You should be a writer with kids who is familiar with the Pen Parentis Mission and believes in the cause. Meetup Leaders are responsible for ensuring that everyone in the group has a voice. The only other thing you need is a one hour of training (run by M. M. De Voe, free to you) and the commitment to run a group for a trial run of three months of weekly one-hour sessions.
All Meetup Leaders are automatically bumped up to the next level of Title Membership (so if you are a Basic member, you become a Laundry Marker Level—if you are already a Laptop Level, you become a Sharpened Pencil, and so forth) this level remains for the duration of your leadership. There is also a small (think coffee not college fees) incentive paid at the end of every month.
Please fill out this form if you are interested in hearing more about becoming a meetup leader.
