Lit Up Gala

All-Star Lit Up

Get ready to party at another night of literary magic!

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, GrubStreet provided scholarships and free classes to one third of our teen and adult students in 2016. Because of you, GrubStreet has provided a rigorous and loving community for creative writers of all ages, backgrounds, types, and talents.

With you in attendance, this year’s Lit Up gala will enable GrubStreet to keep increasing its scholarships, free community workshops, and classes for homeless women and teens, so that writers of every community can develop their voices and share their artistry. Please join us in celebrating and expanding the nation’s most inclusive and accessible writing center.

This year's event will feature:

  • 2017 Grubby Winner, Alice Hoffman,The New York Times best-selling author of Faithful, The Foretelling, The Marriage of Opposites, and The Museum of Extraordinary Things
  • GrubStreet's signature 10X2 program, featuring ten two-minute performances by talented instructors, students, and Literary Council members, including:
  • Dinner and open bar  

Attire at Lit Up is casual chic, but don't be afraid to dress to the nines—it's a party!
