The 2019 Author Challenge has begun!
Author Challenge Grant
Every dollar donated by December 31st will be fully matched
by this group of esteemed writers!
These authors have donated $5,800 and we’re calling on you
to help meet and exceed their challenge! Together, your donations will further
the Guild’s important programming in 2020.
Your generosity and support mean so much to us!
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.
Donations to the Guild Literary Complex supports compelling literary events across Chicago, helping to:
- Promote vibrant literature that contributes to society and community
- Produce programs that engage audiences with dynamic voices and ideas
- Showcase established and emerging writers in intimate settings
- Keep programs geographically and economically accessible
- Archive and disseminate programs beyond the event itself
- Provide honorariums to our artists
