Writers of Color

Get involved in Boston’s diverse writing community!

The Boston Writers of Color (BWoC) group is supported by GrubStreet, and is a place for writers of color to connect, network, empower, and share resources with their peers. Our mission is to support self-identifying writers of color and to help foster a more diverse and inclusive writing community here in Boston and a more equitable publishing landscape.

All writers are welcome, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity.

UPDATE: Due to Covid-19, the Boston Writers of Color group will not be hosting in-person gatherings until it's safe for our community to do so.  While we'll miss seeing each other in-person, we're now offering virtual monthly events as well as other opportunities, including submission fee support, class recommendations, and more.

What We Do:

  • Day-long Retreats
  • Quarterly socials
  • Submit-a-thons
  • Talks with authors and editors
  • Readings
