Grub Street

Grub Street’s mission is to be an innovative, rigorous, and welcoming community for writers who together create their best work, find audience, and elevate the literary arts for all. Since 1997 Grub Street has offered classes and services for writers at all stages of development and prides itself on welcoming as many writers as possible through generous scholarships and free programming.
Grub Street offers free monthly sessions to Boston-area teens as an answer to the limited arts programming in public schools. They offer a paid three-week Teen Summer Fellowship that teens from the Boston area apply to and can earn while they learn, and won’t miss their summer job income for that time span. Grub Street also welcomes other organizations working to advance literacy into their space; they are The Massachusetts Literary Education and Performance Collective and First Literacy.
As a creative center where students are constantly looking for inspiration, having original artwork is very exciting to them to helps cement their identity as a vital member of the Boston arts community. Art will hang in reception area, offices, and all five classrooms.
