Class Description

This class is free and you do not need to pay or apply for a scholarship. Instead, to join this class fill out this form. DO NOT apply for a scholarship through the Grubstreet website.

Barriguita llena, corazón contento./Full belly, happy heart. - Latin American saying

Explore the connection between food, memory, and identity through writing exercises designed to enhance sensory details and leave our readers hungry for more. We’ll whet our appetites by reading work from Esmeralda Santiago, Junot Díaz, Laura Esquivel, Marcel Proust, and Pablo Neruda. This six-week generative workshop will take students through the writing process from brainstorming to revision, building confidence and community along the way. Our class will culminate in a reading and potluck. This class will be primarily in English, but Spanish speakers are welcome!

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
