Lit Up 2020
GrubStreet’s annual gala Lit Up is going virtual and you're invited! Join best-selling author and Grubby Award Winner Celeste Ng and comedian Bethany Van Delft on Wednesday, October 7th to help amplify the stories and voices of Black writers and writers of color in Boston.
This year's online literary fundraiser will be on a "pay what you will" basis, and your ticket donation of any amount will go directly to:
- Increased staffing and programs for the Boston Writers of Color Group.
- New writing and teaching fellowships for Black writers.
- Expanded financial aid for teens and adults, with increased awards for Black writers of all ages.

GrubWrites is a space for the writing and reading community to share ideas and seek advice, a place where writers at the very beginning of their careers publish alongside established authors. Book lovers, we bring you reviews, recommendations, and conversations with exciting new authors to keep you up to speed on all things lit. Writers, this is your one stop shop for expert craft talk, opinions on how we learn and teach writing, and essential advice about the publishing industry.
Plus, we want to hear from you! Our ongoing call for submissions is open to literary community members of all types and persuasions. We want to hear from students, teachers, authors, readers, editors, agents, publicists, and any devotee of the written word. If you have something to say about writing, reading, the publishing industry, or anything related to the literary world, this is the place to voice it. We’re particularly committed to advocating for a diverse range of voices in the literary marketplace and raising the visibility of writers from under-represented communities.See other articles by Info
