Lit Up Gala

Thank you to everyone who supported Lit Up 2019. At this year’s event, more than 260 book-lovers and writers gathered to laugh, connect, and celebrate our city's stories. As a result, Lit Up raised nearly $150,000 for scholarships and free creative writing workshops at GrubStreet. 

With this support, writers of all ages and backgrounds continue to find community at GrubStreet. As poet Sarah Gordon shared at the gala, “GrubStreet gave me a voice, but more importantly, it gave me a home.” Thank you again to all attendees and donors for honoring the many voices in our community and giving them a place to belong.

Couldn’t attend Lit Up, but still want to show support? You can make a donation below. Any amount you give will help ensure that more teen and adult writers can take classes and have their voices heard.

Thank you to our 2019 Lit Up host committee and sponsors!
