There's always something going on at Grub Street. Hardly a week goes by when we're not throwing a party, hosting a reading or writers' group, planning a conference or welcoming a diverse group of writers to our great space on the Boston Common. We believe there are many ways to get writing, that writers can be social and serious, and that networking is an important skill all writers should learn.
Below is a list of our regular events. Click for specific details—including dates, times, registration guidelines, names of attendees—or take a look at the workshop and event listings for upcoming scheduled events.
The Muse and the Marketplace
Write what you love, sell what you write. Our annual literary conference brings top-tier authors, editors and agents from across the country for a weekend of craft seminars, one-on-one consultations and networking. More
Three times a year, Grub Street transforms into a one-of-a-kind reading/dance party. In between short readings on a theme (i.e. "Grub Gone...Wild" or "Grub Gone...Spooky"), the 200+ crowd enjoys beer, wine and dancing to a DJ and/or live music. More
Saturday Morning Serial
Drop in for doughnuts, coffee and a freewheeling discussion on craft, publishing and other hot topics. These informal panels and presentations are an affordable and inspiring way to spend your weekend morning. More

A Taste of Grub
