We are overjoyed to share that after years of advocacy, planning, construction, and fundraising: we did it!
Together as a community, we have officially reached (and surpassed!) our $8 million campaign goal to build and launch our brand-new home. With the GrubStreet community's support, we are set to complete the final touches and launch this new center, with expanded accessible classrooms, a literary stage, a bookstore, and ample community space.
T-14 days until Lit Up 2021, and we couldn't be more excited! We could all use a celebration right now. Your participation in this online event will celebrate our multicultural community of writers and increase equitable access to writing and publishing opportunities. Join us online on September 29th at 7:30pm and you’ll get to enjoy:
Spooky season is right around the corner! Get ready for ghosts, pumpkins, and scary good classes from GrubStreet. If the Zoom fatigue is getting too real, our online classes are the answer—they have no live meetings. That means you can log in and learn from anywhere using our interactive and super easy-to-use platform, Wet Ink. You can go apple-picking, carve pumpkins, and put the finishing touches on the costume of all costumes and still have time for an online class!
Here’s we have coming up this October:
GrubStreet has decided to hold all fall 2021 in-person classes remotely via Zoom video conferencing. To see the full list of all our steps in response to Covid-19, including updates about our space and events click here.
Will you join the final drive to complete our shared literary home? The goal was $8 million. Now, after three years and a huge outpouring of help from community members like you, we have only $40,000 to go to complete a welcoming literary home that will belong to you – and to all the writers and readers who want to share their imaginations and experiences.
