If your organization is interested in presenting public events at the Center for Creative Writing, please reach out to GrubStreet's Stage and Events Team at [email protected], and a team member will be in touch within three weeks.

We are currently seeking arts and community programming that aligns with our mission, and are particularly interested in partners who can manage their event(s) independently and simply, with the ability to assist with setup and breakdown. Our event space has hosted comedy groups, open mics, trivia nights, reading parties, staged readings, and more, and we're always excited to explore more innovative uses of our space!
