Event Information

About this MIDWEEK practice

From ancient epics to 19th century classics to modern fantasy, fiction has long been a way of exploring the human condition. But what happens to the writer when they invent characters, setting, plot, and all the other trappings of literature? In this MIDWEEK, Cat Green will discuss their fiction writing practice and lead you in several short exercises to unlock the spiritual potential of writing.

Cat Green is a nonbinary Boston-based writer. They currently live in the Beacon Hill Friends House, and last year, served as a Program Fellow for BHFH. Right now, they work at Harvard, but they have several forthcoming publications in small literary magazines and are working on their fourth novel.

What is MIDWEEK?

In the Quaker tradition of Midweek (Wednesday) worship, Beacon Hill Friends House brings you MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness. This is a weekly, one-hour, facilitated spiritual practice with Quaker flavor and an experimental ethos. Each week, a guest facilitator engages us in a unique spiritual practice that is meaningful to them, and that we can bring into our own lives. 

MIDWEEK is always free and open to the public. If you'd like to support this program, you can make a donation here.

Event accessibility (covid policies are below): Beacon Hill Friends House is working on making our historic space accessible to everyone.

  • Automated Closed Captions will be available for all participants (on Zoom and in-person).

  • Physical space: This event will take place in our Parlor, which does not have a ground-level entrance. Our primary entrance is up a flight of stairs. If you would like to attend this event but need it to be held in a different space, please indicate so on your registration. ​​On the basement level, we have a single-user, all-gender bathroom with wall-mounted handrails and ample space for chairs and/or aides. We are not a scent-free space but tend to be low-scent.

Attending events in-person at BHFH

All MIDWEEK practices going forward are offered on Zoom and in-person at Beacon Hill Friends House. If you choose to attend in our space, here's what you need to know:

  • Covid policies: All in-person attendees are required to be up-to-date on vaccination against COVID-19 and to wear a mask while inside. We ask for proof of vaccination upon entering the building. Masks will be available for those who forget them.
