About the Project

Beyond the bright lights and cityscapes, stories unfold. Some are true while others are fiction, revealing a side of the city that often goes untold. Chicago Literary Map is charting the text and putting it in the palm of your literary-loving hand.

Navigate Chicago on a new level, guided by the voices who have been, where updates bring new vignettes from around the city. Chicago Literary Map is a website, an app and a writing prompt. If you would like to contribute to the growing community of mapped writers, learn about how to submit here.
