The Guild Literary Complex is a 501c3 nonprofit bringing together the varied voices of Chicago and the world through innovative and integrative programming highlighting the intersections of marginality, the power of community, the impact of arts and activism, with a mission of social justice  and literary arts. We are your on-going curated literary festival serving Chicago’s 50 wards since 1989. With a ethos of radical inclusivity and working in collaboration with the City of Chicago and organizations like the Poetry Foundation, The Museum of Contemporary Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame, The Southeast Asian Center,  Brooks Permissions, Third World Press, Sones de Mexico and many others, the Guild Literary Complex creates dynamic programming highlighting our varied and robust literary community of voices speaking from the margins.  

Please join the Guild Literary Complex for our upcoming events ~ you are invited!
