So many of us need help and support during this uncertain time. And we’re hearing from others who want to know how to help. The spirit of togetherness we’re seeing from our community is inspiring. We’re sharing a few resources for writers and artists here
GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the month of April. We’ve decided as an organization that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of Coronavirus.
In this unprecedented time, many of you have asked how you can help. Now, more than ever, GrubStreet needs your support.
As you may know, we lost a key source of income due to the cancellation of our annual Muse and the Marketplace writers conference, which was to take place in April. We’ve also seen a drop-off in income from class tuition, as we’ve had to cancel many in-person classes during our transition and ramp up to video-conferencing classes.
Dear Fellow Grubbies,
We’re writing with an important update about GrubStreet’s response to the Coronavirus. GrubStreet’s staff and board have been in close conversation since reports of Covid-19 started occurring in Massachusetts. As much as we want to maintain the intimacy and connection of our classrooms and gatherings, our primary responsibility is to keep our community safe
It’s March, which means we are officially sick of winter. If you, like us, are starting to get cabin fever but have no intention of going outside, in this kind of cold, kind of not weather, might we suggest a) reading a book, preferably one set on some kind of beach, and b) signing up for an online class? Through the magic of technology (read: WiFi) you’ll be whisked away to a world of discovery (read: our online platform) where you can explore new worlds (read: stories) and seek adventure (read: get writing).
