What Is This?
Anthology of Chicago is a literary project collecting poems and stories that evoke the spirit of Chicago’s many neighborhoods, celebrating those neighborhoods and the writers that live, work, and play in them.
Chicago’s neighborhoods are crucibles for history and culture and architecture and lovers and fighters and ghosts. Anthology of Chicago wants you to use your neighborhood as sandbox and springboard. Let us run our fingers over your mental map, whether it’s brand new or fraying at the edges. Show us your ghosts. Bring us around your Chicago. We want to point to your piece and proclaim with that Chicago confidence, “That’s Hyde Park! (or Pilsen, or Logan Square, or Andersonville). Couldn’t be anywhere else.”
