Pi Epsilon Pi (Honor Society).
Pi Epsilon Pi (PEP) is a national honor society for undergraduate students in writing and writing studies. PEP was founded by the Loyola University Maryland Writing Department in 2006. DePaul University began the organization’s second chapter in 2008 and a decade later in 2018 Drew University was accepted as a member. Intended for undergraduate majors and minors in writing, PEP is distinct from Lambda Pi Eta (the undergraduate honor society of the National Communication Association) and Sigma Tau Delta (for English majors).

Chapters also include alumni, faculty, staff, and others who practice and support writing in any of its subfields.
