THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE 2018 AUTHOR CHALLENGE OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL YET!

BUT WE’RE NOT DONE YET . . .

2019 marks the The Guild Literary Complex’s 30th anniversary. In order to celebrate three decades of  innovative and accessible programming at the intersections of arts, activism, and community, and to continue connecting artists and audiences from all backgrounds across Chicago’s neighborhoods into a fourth decade and beyond, we are raising:

$30K for 30 YEARS

The success of the 2018 Author Challenge means that we are starting 2019 already more than 40% of the way there!

But we still have a way to go. Over the next year, The Guild plans to expand programming, celebrate our first 30 years, and ensure that the organization remains strong and continues to grow into our fourth decade. The Guild needs you to keep us connecting artists and audiences across boundaries of geography, language, discipline, and background. Help us reach, and surpass, our goal of $30K for our anniversary:

Your financial support makes everything possible. It helps ensure that our unique, cross-cultural programs continue to provide an outlet for Chicago’s established and emerging artists and writers, and opportunities for provocative conversation between artists and audiences. It helps us with things like paying featured artists and awarding contest prizes, renting space for rehearsals and performances, hiring videographers to share event footage with new audiences, and keeping low ticket prices to all our events.
