Boston Writers – Get to Work :)

As many bloggers and blog surfers are writers, I thought I’d post two happenings sponsored in part by GrubStreet.

The first is a poetry revison fellowship:

“The Grub Street 2005 Poetry Revision Fellowship will provide a cash grant, plus artistic and institutional support to an emerging poet from the greater Boston literary community. The fellowship is designed to help one poet revise and prepare for publication a first book-length project.

The Grub Street Poetry Revision Fellow will receive a $2,500 cash stipend, and an in-depth review of his/her manuscript by an established writer.

Applicants must have completed and compiled a draft of a book-length collection of poems. They must also agree to help other Grub Street writers during the six-month fellowship period by giving a reading and holding office hours twice a month.”

And the second is a joint venture between Grub Street and Night Train called Unfinished Boston:

“Unfinished Boston, a joint venture between Grub Street and Night Train, will be a 250-page, perfect-bound fiction anthology published in Spring 2006. We’re looking for short stories that deal with the concept of Boston as a constantly evolving, unfinished entity. The anthology will be distributed and promoted nationally. Sumbissions must be electronic ONLY and in rich text format, and sent to the editors. NOT to Grub Street. Get all details about theme and guidelines.”

I’m going to do my best to beat the 3/31 deadline and have a short done for Unfinished Boston. Wish me luck – anyone else here going to give it a shot?
