Writing Black Joy: True Stories From Real People

grubstreet Image

In partnership with MBK Boston and the Black Joy Project by Thaddeus Miles, we're launching the Black Joy Writing competition. During a time when the news is mostly dispiriting, we want to read true stories about joy – specifically Black joy: moments, scenes, memories, that celebrate Black families, relationships, culture, and history. We are looking for a vivid story that is transporting and meaningful – maybe funny, maybe poignant, but always with joy at its center. Learn more and apply before this Monday, October 12th.
