TAKE THE 2018 AUTHOR CHALLENGE!
JOIN THESE CHICAGO AUTHORS IN SUPPORTING THE GUILD GOING INTO OUR 30TH YEAR

2019 will mark 30 years of innovative and accessible programming at the intersections of arts, activism, and community. The Guild’s programs connect artists and audiences across Chicago’s neighborhoods, and across boundaries of discipline, background, language, and experience.

Over the next year, and beyond, The Guild will be marking our first 30 years by expanding our core programming in scope and ambition, presenting a series of unique celebratory anniversary programs and events, and consolidating the Guild’s history to serve as a resource for the future. To achieve all of this, and to put the Guild in a position to continue our work into a new decade, we are raising $30k for the 30th year of the organization. That campaign begins with the 2018 Author Challenge!

Many of Chicago’s most respected and accomplished writers — friends and associates of the Guild, including members of our Board of Directors – have come together to kick off the $30k for the 30th campaign by challenging the Guild’s community to join them in supporting our 30th anniversary goals with a donation.

Our 2018 Author Challenge ends December 31st.
