In the August 2018 edition of "Best of Boston," we bring you our top Boston lit events this month, curated from the Boston Literary District's event calendar, an essential source of literary happenings.
BOSTON, MA - On Saturday, June 2 at its 2018 National Convention, the Northeasterners, a social organization for African-American women, awarded GrubStreet’s Young Adult Writers Program (YAWP) with a $5,000 donation. The gift was a part of the Northeasterners' annual charitable donation, which is presented to a local organization in the event host’s city.
The Northeasterners selected YAWP after attending a special reading by GrubStreet’s Teen Summer Fellows last July
GrubStreet and Boston Public Library have just announced the relaunch of their neighborhood writing program, Write Down the Street. Participants can take a six-week bilingual writing workshop in Egleston Square, or stop by an hour-long drop-in session in Mattapan.
