Jessica, our founder, moved (back) to Boston in 2012 to pursue a writing career, and when she arrived she looked online for a site that covered the Boston literary community, a site that could tell her all the things going on locally that had to do with books, writers, and readers.
She didn't find anything. So she started one herself.
The Boston literary community is vibrant, diverse, and has great roots. We desire to be a resource to writers and readers, providing the information and tools necessary to know what great readings to go to, what workshops to attend, what books to read, where to pick up a new novel, and more. We hope to be the go-to spot for all things literary in Boston!
Is there an upcoming literary event you'd like to alert us to? Are you a local Boston author who has a book coming out? Let us know!
Also, we're looking for writers to help expand our content. Send us a query through the form below. We're currently looking for posts for our Literary History section, Craft, and even longer-form articles. The only qualification is that you're a local Boston (area) author, or the content is about the Boston literary scene. Please note that we don't pay for posts, but are able to offer a byline, bio, and promotion. Looking forward to hearing from you!
