The Boston writing center Grub Street had its annual Muse & the Marketplace conference over the weekend, drawing hundreds of writers, agents, and editors to the Park Plaza for panel discussions about the publishing industry. Presenters — who included writers Anita Shreve, Ann Hood, Dawn Tripp, and Stephen McCauley, and Boston literary agents Esmond Harmsworth and Kathryn Beaumont — gathered at 28 Degrees in the South End on Friday night for a kickoff party hosted by Zachary Shuster Harmsworth Literary Agency. On Saturday, after musician Amanda Palmer gave a keynote speech, VIPs (including Palmer) partied at the Back Bay home of Grub supporters Jay and Christy Scott Cashman. Sunday’s keynote address was given by New Yorker critic James Wood.
