We’re a small start-up writing community currently exploring nonprofit status.

Our goal is to create an affordable and accessible alternative to the MFA vs. New York paths into the world of creative writing and publishing. That is not to say we are replacing the university or New York systems. We wish to work in partnership with the university and within the existing publishing industry.

Through traditional courses and workshops, we will provide writer training that is not dependent upon a degree. We will strive to make these courses and workshops affordable at the same time pay our instructors equitably and fairly.

We envision a lot of things: a literary festival, conferences, visiting authors, a journal–not all of which we have quite figured out yet. First and foremost though, we wish to engage with the New England creative writing community, and celebrate the successes of our members and encourage them in their endeavors.
