Come meet Maria Pinto, the 2022 Community Programs teaching fellow at GrubStreet! Talk with Maria about your ongoing projects and writing goals for the new(ish) year as well as learn more about submitting your work. Applying to fellowships, contests, scholarships, and other creative writing opportunities can be intimidating, especially the first time around. Come join us for a question-and- answer session that clarifies the application process for Grubstreet’s Emerging Writer Fellowship as well as many other opportunities. Once you understand the basic elements of an application, you’ll have the building blocks to tackle most applications in the future.

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.

About GrubStreet Remote Classes

GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the month of April. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
