Poets and writers from Write Down the Street creative writing classes will read fiction, poetry, and memoir from many experiences and perspectives. Readers include Lloyd Sheldon Johnson, Marjorie Saintil-Belizaire, Carmen-Isabel Belizaire, Zachary Saintil-Belizaire, Carolyn Jackson, and more!
Write Down the Street / Autores a la Vuelta is a partnership between GrubStreet, one of the nation’s largest literary arts centers, and Boston Public Library. These workshops create space for writing and discussion in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and everything in between, with free creative writing classes at the Egleston Square, Mattapan, and East Boston library branches.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
