Welcome to Free Write!

“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.”
~ Anais Nin

We are a group of Muslim writers in the Greater Boston area who meet for a creative writing workshop every other Sunday at the ISBCC in Roxbury. We craft stories and share them, discuss poetry and prose, and simply talk about life itself. We are a welcoming group that is open to all!

Our sessions start off with a writing prompt, that the group writes to for 30-45 min. (Free Writing is always an option). We then move on to sharing with each other, but there is no requirement to share. This usually leads into short discussions around the themes in the writing, which can take on shades of humor, contemplative reflection, or insight into our selves and our environment. We seek to improve and grow in our writing, but more importantly, we hope to create a space where people feel free to express and be themselves. Writing is just the medium for us to do just this. There’s no need to be an expert and you don’t have to be a ‘writer’ to participate.
