The Breakwater Reading Series is Boston’s inter-MFA program showcase, featuring student writers from Boston University, Emerson College, and the University of Massachusetts-Boston performing the best in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Six fresh voices read in each installment of this popular series, presented by the Graduate Writing Department at UMass-Boston. Readings are held at the Brookline Booksmith, one of Boston’s most wonderful independent bookstores, at 7pm on the third Friday of every month from September through June. The event is always free and open to the public and regularly draws an audience of 60+ attendees from the Boston community.
