Read everything you can. The work that you read helps solve writing problems you may encounter in the future. By learning how other writers wrote through certain dilemmas, upon encountering those dilemmas in your work, you already have a toolbox to select a tool for a particular issue.

We offer various workshop formats, including live Zoom 2-hour or 3-hour “Sprints,” 1-week live or asynchronous workshops, and 4 and 8-week asynchronous workshops. No matter what your needs are, we have a workshop format that’ll work for you!

FAWC Scholar Awards

Scholarship opportunities are integral to our commitment to making 24PearlStreet as welcoming, accessible, and inclusive as possible. We were so proud to collaborate with the Institute of American Indian Arts this past fall—providing three FAWC Scholar Awards, worth $600 each, for Indigenous American writers to take online creative writing workshops at 24PearlStreet. Other scholarship partners include Cave Canem, Kundiman, and our newest scholarship partner, Zoeglossia.

24PearlStreet’s High School Initiative 

We are proud to partner with Boston Public Libraries and 826Boston to provide workshop opportunities for high school students every Summer. Not only are the workshops free, but we pay a stipend to participating students.
