GrubStreet has come a long way from a flyer nailed to a Brookline tree 22 years ago. Today, we now serve over 6,000 writers a year and offer scholarships for classes and our annual conference to over 400 writers. None of this would be possible without supporters like you. In the next 24 hours, you can join us this #GivingTuesday by supporting our mission to offer you and fellow writers life-changing and accessible resources.
