Grubbie Debut Submission Form

Grubbie Debut Submission Form

Are you a Grub community member with a forthcoming debut book? Was your book or its publication influenced by your time at GrubStreet? If you’d like us to host your launch event on our Writers' Stage, please fill out our brief application form!

Grubbie Debut Series Event Request Form

Criteria and Eligibility:

1) Your book is forthcoming in this calendar year or beyond.
2) The featured book is your first in its genre. For example, your debut novel is eligible even if you’ve already published a book of short stories, poetry, or a memoir.
3) The drafting or publishing of your book was helped in a meaningful way by your experiences at GrubStreet.

To allow GrubStreet and Porter Square Books adequate time to organize and promote your book launch event, we ask that you submit a request no less than two months in advance of your publication date.

Deadlines and Review Process:

Requests are considered on a rolling basis. All requests will be reviewed by GrubStreet's Events team. We hope to reply to all requests within 4-6 weeks.

In line with our mission, GrubStreet actively pursues diversity, equity, inclusivity, and belonging (DEIB) because we believe in the dignity of every human being and the inherent value of our stories. We commit to recognizing and addressing racism and other oppressive systems on interpersonal, organizational, and systemic levels to make GrubStreet an inclusive and equitable home for everyone. All debut books and authors featured in the Grubbie Debut Series must align with our core mission and values.

Due to space and capacity, we cannot accept all Grubbie Debut Series event requests. Though we would love to celebrate every book with an event, we hope you understand and appreciate our limitations. If we can't host your event, please know that we will still promote your book to the GrubStreet community. We love sharing good news!

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Events team at [email protected].
