Join us for a night of bookish fun at GrubStreet's annual narrative arts gala! In doing so, you'll support literary access for writers of all ages, backgrounds, and incomes. In fact, last year, individuals like you helped raise $108,070 to provide scholarships as well as free creative writing workshops to teen and adult writers in low-income communities. With you in attendance this year, even more writers will have access to the mentorship and support they need to develop their craft and share their stories.
