Description: If you've always wanted to write about your life, start with stories about food. Join us for a creative writing workshop (all levels of experience with writing are welcome) and we will spend the time writing using writing prompts based on food. The focus of this generative workshop will be writing rather than sharing writing or giving feedback.

Grace Talusan is the author of the memoir, The Body Papers, winner of the 2020 Massachusetts Book Award in Nonfiction, the Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing, and a New York Times Editors' Choice selection. She was born in the Philippines and raised in New England. She graduated from Tufts University and the MFA Program in Writing at UC Irvine. She is the recipient of a U.S. Fulbright Fellowship to the Philippines and an Artist Fellowship Award from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. She taught writing for many years at Tufts University and Grub Street. Currently, she is the Fannie Hurst writer-in-residence at Brandeis University.
