Emerging Writers Fellowship Reading and Celebration
GrubStreet's Emerging Writer Fellowship is celebrating its fifth year! The Fellowship aims to develop new, exciting voices by providing writers tuition-free access to GrubStreet’s classes and Muse & the Marketplace conference. Join us on Thursday, October 6th from 7:00pm-9:00pm to hear from current and past fellows Julian Iralu, Kevin Jiang, Destiny Lopez, Tochukwu Okafor, and Antonia Yang, who will each read from their work. They will then be joined by GrubStreet Instructor and Program Manager, Laniesha Brown for a panel discussion about their experiences in the Fellowship and as writers.
Bring your mask, join the fun! Please make sure to pre-register!

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 class. Please submit your proof of vaccination here at least 48 hours before your class 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 class 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 class. And don’t forget your mask! In accordance with the City of Boston, 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.
