Community Message About the 2020 Election
We want to acknowledge how uncertain many in our community are feeling since Election Day. However you’re feeling, we hope you’re taking the time necessary to care for yourself and others around you.
As we believe in the promise of a multicultural writing center where all voices are heard, we believe in the promise of an equitable and just multicultural democracy where every vote is counted. Even after all the votes have been counted for this election, there will still be much work ahead for our nation to ensure that the voices of people who have been historically disenfranchised are heard. We stand with groups like Protect Democracy, Fair Fight, and All on the Line who are doing essential work to ensure voting rights and fair elections.
At GrubStreet, we believe that writing has an important role to play in supporting democratic values. Thank you for being a part of this community and for making your voice heard now and in the future.
GrubWrites is a space for the writing and reading community to share ideas and seek advice, a place where writers at the very beginning of their careers publish alongside established authors. Book lovers, we bring you reviews, recommendations, and conversations with exciting new authors to keep you up to speed on all things lit. Writers, this is your one stop shop for expert craft talk, opinions on how we learn and teach writing, and essential advice about the publishing industry.
Plus, we want to hear from you! Our ongoing call for submissions is open to literary community members of all types and persuasions. We want to hear from students, teachers, authors, readers, editors, agents, publicists, and any devotee of the written word. If you have something to say about writing, reading, the publishing industry, or anything related to the literary world, this is the place to voice it. We’re particularly committed to advocating for a diverse range of voices in the literary marketplace and raising the visibility of writers from under-represented communities.See other articles by Info
