What we’re about
The Boston Writers of Color (BWOC) group, is a network that consists of over 2,000+ members through Facebook Group, Meetup, and our mailing list. As part of GrubStreet’s BWOC program, writers of color and community members share resources, network, and mutual support. The group aims to provide writers of color with a safe and welcoming space to commune, share their good news or writing struggles, and find their people. Literary opportunities and events in the Facebook Group are posted daily, Meetup is used solely for events, and our newsletter is sent out once a month. Opportunities include writing contests, publications, pitch calls, writing conferences, residencies and retreats, free and paid writing classes, and more.
