I'm turning my first marathon into a fundraiser for Grub Street, Inc, an independent writing school in Boston, MA.
Because every good thing in my writing life can be traced back to finding my way into a a Grub Street classroom in 2001, and I want to help pass on the welcome Grub gave me to the next generation of Grub Street writers.
My "Run for Grub" will fund a scholarship for writers who are new to Grub Street--whether that means they're taking their first-ever Grub Street class or testing out a class in a genre that's new to them.
