It’s a little known secret to most Bostonians, but it’s hugely popular among many local writers. Let me introduce you to Grub Street. Aptly named, it’s where writer’s feed their hunger for literary greatness. And why shouldn’t they? We’re living in a city that produced some of the greatest literary stars of our time. Like Robert Frost and Edgar Allen Poe.

So imagine my unabashed excitement to learn they’ll hosting a Writers on Writing Panel on Monday, September 14. Oh, and it’s FREE. Most often, these valauable workshop style programs cost money. But this one sounds so good, I couldn’t let it slip by unnoticed.

The details: Monday, September 14, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Grub Street, Inc. (160 Boylston Street, 4th Floor)

The reason to jump up an down: Author and HarperCollins editor Rakesh Satyal (Blue Boy), debut novelist Ru Freeman (A Disobedient Girl), and PEN/Winship Award-winning Rishi Reddi (Karma and Other Stories) host a honest, craft-based and provocative discussion about how to use your ethnicities and identities in writing.

So are you hungry to learn? Then don’t be shy. If you don’t stay for the refreshments or book signing, at least come to learn from published writer’s what it takes you write your true, assured, and thought-provoking story.

Upside: Hey, it’s free. And Grub Street overlooks Boston Common. You can’t really ask for a better view.

Downside: You’ll get cozy with the elevator on your ride up. But by now, you should expect that in Boston.
