[BOSTON] Writing Sprints

NaNoWriMo is almost over, it's dark out starting at like 3pm, you're sick of the inside of your house, your spirits are flagging! How are you supposed to hit 50k at this rate???

By doing some writing sprints, of course! Come to Porter Square Books: Boston Edition to sit with other writers and write in silence for an hour. (Or to give up and read for an hour, we won't judge. It's all part of the process.) We have couches, chairs, countertops and tables...

[BOSTON] Robert Pinsky with Jersey Breaks: Becoming an American Poet

Presented by Porter Square Books in partnership with the American Inspiration series and the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center of NEHGS, Mass Poetry, and GrubStreet.

The best-loved poet, celebrated critic, translator, and teacher, shares his coming-of-age story: a lyrical and poignant portrait of America in the last century, its melting pot, and one man’s against-many-odds rise to literary success.
