GrubStreet’s Your Body, Your Story series focuses on nonfiction writing about pregnancy, abortion, and miscarriage through a reproductive justice lens. Classes in this series are being offered at reduced prices, or at no cost. Full scholarships are available, and a portion of the tuition will be donated to We Testify, a nonprofit organization that supports abortion storytellers.

The November 2022 edition of "Writing Life Essentials" is a monthly hand-curated list of contests, grants, scholarships, submission calls, and awards. We try to prioritize 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, artistically piling decorative gourds. That’s important, too.
