The GrubStreet office will be closed for the holidays from Monday, December 23rd through Wednesday, January 1st and will reopen on Thursday, January 2nd. We look forward to connecting with you then!
We think that some of the best moments of the holidays are the ones where we share stories. With that in mind, our Write Down the Street team have each chosen a book that inspired them this year and that they hope to share with you. They recommend these titles as gifts to yourself or to your friends, family, and community members, and hope they inspire joy, laughter, reflection, and writing in your lives.
Author of A Kind of Solitude and GrubStreet’s Director of Core Programs and Faculty, Dariel Suarez, recently interviewed author Jess Row about his new book White Flights: Race, Fiction, and the American Imagination, a collection of essays on whiteness in American fiction and culture from the end of the civil rights movement to the present.
Push your writing further by taking a master class this spring. The deadline to apply to all of GrubStreet's advanced courses is this Friday, December 20th. Check below for more info about each of these classes and don't miss your chance to apply.
