Since 2011 the Black Seed Writers Group, which meets every Tuesday morning at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in downtown Boston, has been providing a creative space for homeless, transitional, and recently housed writers. Under the guidance of founder/editor James Parker, a staff writer for the Atlantic, the group’s weekly sessions have become the hub of a prophetic and highly active literary community.
