Words Create Worlds Award Ceremony
Join us as we celebrate Words Create Worlds Award Winners 2022!
Getting To We, Porter Square Books, and GrubStreet are thrilled to celebrate the inaugural Words Create Worlds Award Winners, Christine Pride and Jo Piazza, authors of We Are Not Like Them! Words Create Worlds Award is designed to amplify the voices of writers of books, essays, screen plays, or poetry whose messages turn us and them into we.
This in-person event will also be broadcasted live to the Porter Square Books Crowdcast (register here for virtual viewing).
The first ten people to register in-person will receive a signed copy of the book, which they can pick up in-person at the event. Please note: we will notify you if you've made the list of the first 10 registrations. This giveaway will only apply to those who can attend the event in-person to receive the books, and Porter Square Books will not ship or save giveaway copies.
This event will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood. Please note that proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is required to attend this event. Please submit your proof of vaccination here at least 48 hours before your event begins. Read on to learn more about GrubStreet's vaccine protocol and find information about where to get vaccinated below.
GrubStreet Vaccine Protocol
Please submit your most recent proof of vaccination, which requires a booster shot for those eligible, here at least 48 hours before your class begins. If you have previously submitted a proof of vaccination that did not include your booster shot, you will need to resubmit your updated vaccine card. If you are not able to fill out our vaccination form 48 hours before your class begins, please bring your vaccine card (or a photo of it) with you to the building. Please note that if you arrive for this event and you have not filled out the form and do not have proof of vaccination with you, you will not be allowed to participate in the event. And don’t forget your mask! Masks will be required at all times while inside the building. Click here to read GrubStreet's full Vaccination and Masking Policy.
Vaccination status: For in-person classes and events, your vaccination status is considered up-to-date until the time you are eligible for a booster – which is 5 months after the second dose in a two-shot series. Boosters are required for all visitors on our second floor if your second shot was more than 5 months ago.
