“Writing is a conversation with reading; a dialogue with thinking.” We are a group of writers -- poets, prose authors, playwrights, and so on -- who share ideas, discuss possibilities, and support each other in the work of creative development.

As a member of The Boston Writers' Workshop, you have access to an expansive network of fellow writers. Meet up with them for group critique and literary discussion at a weekly workshop; catch up with them at one of the many readings or literary events advertised on the group calendar; or make use of the discussion forum and mailing list to keep the conversation going online. 

Other benefits of group membership include discounted registration fees for Summer Seminars; a refund discount for purchases made at Grolier Poetry Bookshop; and exclusive access to manuscript consultation and evaluation services.

This  Meetup group is run by the Boston Poetry Union and affiliated with its publishing project, Pen & Anvil Press. To learn more about opportunities with the Union or the Press, email the organizers.

(This group was formerly known as the Boston Poetry Workshop, and prior to that, Charles River Writers.)
