Event Description

The BWOC Writing Retreat is back! Join us on Saturday, June 22nd from 10:00am-1:00pm for a light writing retreat at GrubStreet. This is time for you to gather with fellow BIPOC writers, as well provide some useful time for your writing. Bring your laptops, notebooks, and pens, and come write with us!

We’ll have rooms to suit your particular writing preferences, such as a quiet room, a room with music, a room that welcomes light talking, as well as a room particularly for writers for children. There will also be other writing spots in the hallways and community lounge to focus on your writing goals. We will also have refreshments available.

This event is particularly for the Boston Writers of Color members, which is free to join. If you do not have a GrubStreet account, you'll be prompted to create one upon registration, and join the BWOC group.


This class will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood.
