Muse and the Marketplace

GrubStreet’s Muse & the Marketplace conference 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.

Muse 2024

The Muse & The Marketplace returns to a fully in-person, three-day conference this spring.
That’s right! Mark your calendar for May 10-12, 2024, at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

We can't wait to host you for a joyful writing weekend packed with a diverse range of craft-focused and publishing keynotes, discussions, and guided writing sessions; manuscript mart sessions; networking opportunities with your writing peers and industry experts; and that sense of community and just plain fun you won’t find anywhere else.
Count on an inspiring and motivating experience delivered with the excellence that made The Muse & The Marketplace the “#1 Writer’s Conference in North America” (Writer Magazine).

Registration is expected to open in late fall — so stay tuned for an announcement with exact dates and many more exciting details to come!
