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:
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:
