Muse and the Marketplace 2023

GrubStreet’s Muse & the Marketplace conference series helps writers tell their best stories, build exciting careers, and find the audiences who will be transformed by their work. We bring writers from different backgrounds and career stages together with leading literary agents, editors, and authors producing some of today's most exciting new work for thoughtful conversations on how to write well and for guidance on navigating the business on the path to publication.

New for 2023

We’re kicking off our Muse and the Marketplace Conference Series programming with two virtual publishing summits — that will include Manuscript Mart sessions where you get to meet with leading literary agents or editors who will read your work and provide feedback — this May and July.

Registration for both the May and July events will open on Thursday, February 16 for GrubStreet members and on Tuesday, February 21 for everyone.
