Applying to fellowships, contests, scholarships and other creative writing opportunities can be intimidating, especially the first time around. Come join us for some detailed tips and strategies on how to submit a strong application. We will also have ample time for a question-and-answer style discussion to clarify the application process for GrubStreet’s Emerging Writer Fellowship as well as many other opportunities. Once you understand the basic elements of an application and what's expected of applicants, you’ll have the building blocks to successfully 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 have been underrepresented in it due to cost, racism, immigration status, language access, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that these 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 end of the summer. 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.
