To help keep our spirits up and our words flowing, we're sharing Muse and the Marketplace keynote talks and special event videos from GrubStreet's past in a series called "From the Grub Archive." This week, we're sharing the Writers of Color Roundtable from the 2016 Muse and the Marketplace Conference.
Teen writers! Want to transform your fanfiction to fan-worthy writing of your own, explore contemporary writers of a variety of backgrounds, or study the role of writing in music? We've got you covered with a full schedule of remote summer teen classes starting soon. Join fellow teens over live video conferencing via Zoom and work on your writing together from the comfort of home.
As always, scholarships are available for every single class.

There are many ways to observe Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, so we’ve compiled a list of Juneteenth events happening virtually here in the Greater Boston area. As the fight for equity and justice continues, we hope this list provides some resources to commemorate this vital day in history and celebrate the contributions, writing, art, and experiences of Black Americans.
Join Memoir Incubator alum E. Dolores Johnson on Wednesday, June 17th at 7pm for a virtual discussion of her memoir Say I'm Dead: A Family Memoir of Race, Secrets, and Love. She will be joined in conversation by author and Director of GrubStreet's Muse and the Marketplace Sonya Larson. Learn more and pre-register here.
