In a Nutshell
Twice this year, GrubStreet will host Writers’ Weekends to celebrate and highlight the work of diverse communities within the writing world. Each Writers’ Weekend will feature special events — readings, craft sessions, keynotes, parties, and more — to explore how writing intersects with identity, culture, and society.
Latinx Writers’ Weekend
Our inaugural Latinx Writers’ Weekend is open to our whole community and will take place June 2-4. We're thrilled to have a weekend of programming that amplifies and celebrates the voices of Latinx writers:
Join us for a free opening reception and reading where you can mingle with fellow attendees, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and hear from our featured readers.
Sign up for a 3-hour craft seminar with instructor Elizabeth Santiago focused on capturing and preserving the diversity of voices within Latinx communities.
Attend an evening keynote address featuring author Angie Cruz (Dominicana) and Daphne Santana Strassmann discussing preserving Latinx voices in creative work and communities. Following the keynote, there will be an audience Q&A and book signing.
Sign up for a publishing seminar with Nadxieli Nieto and Saraciea J. Fennell discussing representation of Latinx authors, the publishing landscape in 2023, what it’s like on the publisher side of the table, tips for how writers can succeed in a competitive landscape, and more.
Join us for a free closing address featuring poet and picture book author Rio Cortez (Golden Ax), joined in conversation by author Camille Gomera-Tavarez.
LGBTQ+ Writers’ Weekend
Get ready! This fall, we'll be diving into our LGBTQ+ Writers’ Weekend with conversations on the stage, a trivia night, a literary fashion show, craft and publishing sessions, a queer literary fair, and a keynote reading and book signing.
