Letter from the Board Co-Presidents
Dear Grub Street friends, Like many of you, we weren’t necessarily sad to say good-bye to 2009. In addition to the global economic gloom, we saw fellow non-profits shaken—whether hit by the recession or rocked by the Madoff scandal. We have to admit we didn’t know what to expect for our own small community organization. Would people abandon their writing dreams to focus on shifting priorities, or would they turn to words to find meaning in the upheaval? Happily, our belief in the power of writing seemed to prevail. A growing number of students found inspiration in our workshops and events, and the generous spirit that infuses so much of Grub Street’s outreach remained visible all year long. A few months into 2010, we’re proud to report that the state of Grub Street is strong. In this case, numbers tell as good a story as words. We ended the 2009 fiscal year with a net income of $22,000. Over 1500 students came through the doors for our sold-out workshops, and more than 300 teen students participated in our monthly teen writing courses and summer program. Our biannual Adaptations story/film event was another sell-out success. Though, like many non-profits around the nation, we did experience a dip in fundraising revenue, we were the proud recipients of an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant through the NEA, which helped bridge the gap and enabled us to retain one of our staff members and fund eight of our multi-week writing workshops.
Allison and Linda at a recent board meeting.
Our momentum continues this year. Enrollments in our workshops are holding steady, as are our membership and volunteer rates. We sold out our celebrated annual conference, The Muse and the Marketplace. And, best of all, we hear from writers at every stage of their careers, thanking us for helping them achieve their goals of finishing their book or getting published for the first—or fifteenth—time. As board co-presidents, we believe passionately in Grub Street’s mission. And we take pride in Grub’s many achievements this year. But none inspire us as much as stories of how being part of the Grub Street community has transformed people’s lives. From the uncovered talent of seniors in our Memoir Project, to our newest members, to two Master Novel course alums with novels out in bookstores, Grub Street helps writers find their voice, find a writing home, and find success. These stories, and many more, add up to a thriving, vibrant arts community that improves the richness of life in our city. Gloria Wright is a senior from Mission Hill whose work was written and published for the first time through our Memoir Project. Born in 1933, Gloria worked as a nurse, then became an entrepreneur and opened a convenience store at 1070 Tremont Street, which she ran for over twenty-five years. Gloria’s memories include a fantastic story about meeting Albert Einstein as a girl and asking for his autograph. In her retelling, Einstein comes alive—still a quirky genius, but one who had time to share with a little girl: “He’d have on one boot and one galosh, as he steadied a black pipe at the left side of his mouth. His coat didn’t have buttons but a big safety pin that held it together... He sat me down on a little bench and…lectured me about different mushrooms that grew under trees, spoke about a little boy that he tutored in math, and even shared details about his second wife and the first one whom he’d divorced. Then eventually he signed my [autograph] book.” Gloria’s fascinating story is included in the Memoir Project’s upcoming third anthology, Sometimes They Sang With Us, and is just one example of the moving and beautiful histories that would have been lost if they weren’t recorded by our Project. If you’ve ever taken a class at Grub Street, you’ve probably heard about our ongoing Master Novel course with Jenna Blum, which is such an institution the students call themselves “The Council.” We’re proud that our master novelists had two publishing success stories this year: Randy Susan Meyers and Iris Gomez both just published their first novels, The Murderer’s Daughters and Try To Remember, to great reviews. In the coming years, we expect more great news out of that class—and the other one hundred workshops we offer each year. Member Len Abrams is a fixture at Grub Street these days. The staff can count on him coming in most mornings, setting up his laptop in a free classroom and spending the day working on his book. As Len says, “When I left my last job a year ago—more to the point, when it left me—I realized I had always wanted to write a novel and here was the opportunity. I wandered into Grub Street, became a member, and started coming in three days a week. Grub provided me with a community of other writers and a comfortable space to work. I am finishing up the first draft of an 80,000 word novel, and also completed three short stories, a respite when I lost traction with the novel. Grub Street has exceeded my expectations.” Len joins a growing group of members who use the Grub Street space to work on their writing, hold their book club meetings, and spend time with other writers. And we have one final story that’s particularly meaningful to Grub Street’s future. 2009 was also the year that we dedicated ourselves to finding an Executive Director to take the helm, in partnership with Artistic Director Christopher Castellani. We are thrilled that Eve Bridburg, Grub’s founder, is back to fill this new role. Eve is brimming with vision and energy, and we’re very excited to work closely with her to shape the next chapter of Grub Street. 2010 will be a whirlwind year, packed with changes, new initiatives, and a great, unfolding story. We can’t wait to keep turning the pages. Warm regards, Linda Button and Allison Adair Grub Street Board of Directors Co-Presidents
Highlights from 2009
The Memoir Project
Since its inception in 2006, the Memoir Project has visited ten ethnically diverse Boston neighborhoods and offered free multi-week workshops to instruct seniors in the craft of memoir writing, giving them a practical and meaningful way to turn their experiences into crafted narratives. In 2009, the Memoir Project visited Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill and Hyde Park. The Memoir Project is a collaboration with the City of Boston, and Mayor Thomas M. Menino has described it as “vital work for our city.”

The Muse and the Marketplace
The Muse and the Marketplace, New England’s leading annual weekend conference for writers, literary agents and publishers, returned to Boston for its eighth successful year on April 25 - 26th at the historic Boston Park Plaza. Grub Street welcomed over 400 participants and renowned author Ann Patchett (Run, Bel Canto) as keynote speaker. As always, the sold-out weekend was a fun and inspiring way to learn about “writing what you love and selling what you write.”

Young Adults Writers Program
Grub Street’s YAWP program introduces teens to the power of creative writing. Over 200 teens found inspiration at our entirely free Saturday sessions, where they worked on poems, screenplays, sci-fi tales and much more. Advanced students participated in our second annual YAWP Summer Fellowship, which pays students a stipend for their time spent as working writers in the two-week creative writing and publishing practicum.

Grub Street National Book Prize
The Book Prize recognizes the talent of writers whose primary residence is outside New England. The prize is offered three times annually to a poet, fiction writer and nonfiction writer publishing beyond his or her first work. The 2009 poetry winner was Rick Barot for his collection, Want, and the fiction winner was Alan Cheuse for To Catch the Lightning (there was no 2009 non-fiction winner). We are thrilled to have this opportunity to reward authors who have made sustained commitments to their work.
Grub Street is a non-profit creative writing center dedicated to nurturing writers and connecting readers with the wealth of writing talent in the Boston area. Our mission is to support creative writers at all stages of their development so that they can achieve their goals of publication, social and professional networking, gainful employment in the field, and/or personal enrichment.
What we do
We accomplish our mission by providing university-level instruction via multi-week courses, seminars and conferences; bringing the transformative power of creative writing to underserved populations – specifically teens and seniors – via innovative programs and community events; financially supporting and offering unique professional development opportunities to creative writing instructors, seminar leaders and administrative staff; elevating the literary profile of the city of Boston to increase its relevance among major publishing houses and prominent authors in all genres; and maintaining a vibrant, inspiring and accessible space where writers can find professional resources and connect with each other in a spirit of mutual support.
