So many of us need help and support during this uncertain time. And we’re hearing from others who want to know how to help. The spirit of togetherness we’re seeing from our community is inspiring. We’re sharing a few resources for writers and artists here
GrubStreet is hosting all upcoming spring classes remotely. We’ve decided as an organization that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of Coronavirus (to learn about our plans for summer classes, see below).
The April 2020 edition of "Writing Life Essentials," a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submissions calls, and awards, with a focus on opportunities that are at least one of the following: local, free to apply, and/or committed to celebrating and supporting writers from historically marginalized communities. We do the research, so you have more time for what matters: the writing. Or, preparing April Fool’s jokes. That’s important too.

Today, March 4, is the official Boston launch of my second novel, This Terrible Beauty. It's a momentous occasion for me for many reasons, not least of which is that I feel proud of finding what I think is the right balance between fact and fiction.
What I mean is, I had so, so, SO much material for this book
In this unprecedented time, many of you have asked how you can help. Now, more than ever, GrubStreet needs your support.
As you may know, we lost a key source of income due to the cancellation of our annual Muse and the Marketplace writers conference, which was to take place in April. We’ve also seen a drop-off in income from class tuition, as we’ve had to cancel many in-person classes during our transition and ramp up to video-conferencing classes.
