Class Description

Have you ever wished for a supportive place to help you grow as a writer? GrubStreet, the largest literary arts center in the U.S., has been supporting Boston writers for over 20 years. Write Down the Street is an extension of GrubStreet in your own neighborhood. Come unwind after work with a snack and a cold drink, connect with other writers, and get insights from a friendly professional writer on submitting work for publication, local classes and opportunities, the Boston Writers of Color group, and applying to MFA programs and residencies. Bring your questions and 2-5 page sample of your work.Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.

This class takes place at the Boston Public Library's Egleston Square branch, 2044 Columbus Ave, Roxbury, MA 02119. If you have any difficulty signing up online, please call 617-695-0075.
