GrubStreet's New Home


About GrubStreet's New Home: 

GrubStreet's new space features expanded classrooms for teens and adults, community space to read and write, a bookstore run by our friends at Porter Square Books, a cafe, a podcast studio, and a stage for the literary arts with cabaret seating. Located on the southeast side of the 50 Liberty Drive building, facing the Marina and the ICA, our new space is three times as large as our former home, offers full ADA-accessibility (including hearing assistance technology in the classrooms), and allows us to offer expanded literary programs for writers and readers of all ages and backgrounds. 

To keep our community safe, we require proof of vaccination that includes a booster shot against Covid-19 for everyone visiting the second floor, where all classes will be held. Masks will be required at all times while inside the building, whether you’re on the first or second floor.   

Our plan for opening is to gradually ramp back up to a robust slate of in-person courses in 2022. You can view all of our upcoming in-person classes here. All other GrubStreet programs will remain remote unless otherwise noted in the coming months. Please check the location of any class or event before registering to confirm whether they will take place in-person or online.

For GrubStreet members, we're currently working on creating other ways for you to both visit the space safely and use our new community lounge and classrooms to get some writing done. So stay tuned!

Vaccine & Mask Policy:

To keep our community safe, we require proof of vaccination that includes a booster shot against Covid-19 for everyone visiting the second floor, where all classes will be held. Masks will be required at all times while inside the building, whether you’re on the first or second floor. Learn more about our vaccine and mask policy. 

Direction, Parking, Public Transportation:

Our new Center for Creative Writing is located on the southeast side of the 50 Liberty Drive building, facing the Marina and the ICA. Parking in the area is extremely limited, so we strongly encourage taking public transportation or biking when possible. We are a 4-minute walk from the Silver Line Courthouse stop and a 14-minute walk from South Station. Learn more about traveling to the space.

Have No Fear! Zoom's Still Here:

We’re also excited to share that we’ll keep on Zooming. We have a full schedule of Zoom and Online classes available for you. And even as we ramp back up to a robust in-person slate of course offerings, Zoom classes and events will be an important part of the general mix of GrubStreet offerings moving forward.

Porter Square Books: Boston Edition Open:

Our partners at Porter Square Books have officially opened their Boston Edition and are now open seven days a week from 10am-8pm.

GrubStreet Cafe Coming Soon:

We’re still in the midst of building our new café, too! The plan is to serve delicious coffee and espresso, simple breakfast and lunch items, yummy snacks, and (pending approval of our alcohol license — fingers crossed) beer and wine. We’re hoping the café will be ready in late summer 2022. Stay tuned for more updates about the café in the coming months.

Stay Updated:  

In the coming months, we’ll communicate more with you about all of our opening plans. For the latest updates, sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Twitter.
