Writers of Color

Get Involved In Boston’s Inclusive Writing Community!

The Boston Writers of Color (BWoC) group, supported by GrubStreet, is a place for writers of color, and others who support the mission of the group, to connect, network, empower, and share resources with their peers. Our mission is to support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) writers, foster a more representative and inclusive writing community here in Boston, and work toward a more equitable publishing landscape. The idea for this group came from conversations among writers of color in GrubStreet’s student population as well as staff members, instructors, and writers in the Boston area. All are welcome.

To keep our community safe, GrubStreet will not be hosting in-person gatherings through the end of the year, and BWOC has transitioned to virtual events for the time being. Join our mailing list or Facebook Group to stay updated.
