When life piles on the stresses, it’s hard to find stable and steady ground with our emotions and feelings. The feeling of uncertainty can limit the need to be present, and it is challenging to operate from a healthy place. Take a creative writing break with writer Dzidzor Azalgo and learn tips on using journal writing to express, emote, reflect, and vent feelings. Use creative writing to journey through embracing our rage, peace, and joy in the midst of uncertainty. Register here.
Thursday, December 10th from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM (via Zoom)
Marching and protesting are powerful and necessary ways to promote change, and writing has also been a force for change for centuries across the globe. Learn how to shape your outrage through writing that uncovers, explores, calls out, and spotlights issues that you want to advance in this world to make it better in this workshop with author Maria Pinto. Register here.
Presented by the Roxbury, Mattapan, and Grove Hall branches in partnership with GrubStreet Center for Creative Writing. These free classes will take place on Zoom. Registrants will be emailed an invite on the day of the workshop.
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
