WE’RE OPEN REMOTELY

GrubStreet is hosting all upcoming May and June 2020 in-person 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.

April 2020 Top Picks: Opportunities for Writers

grubstreet Image

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 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.

By Katrin Schumann

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

GrubStreet classes have gone remote, but if you need a little more flexibility in your schedule, sign up for our Online Classes. What's the difference between our "remote" and "online" classes? “Online” classes differ from remote classes because they are hosted entirely on our online learning platform, Wet Ink, and have no live or scheduled meetings
