In 2013, Anthology of Chicago launched and held submissions for Hyde Park, Pilsen, Logan Square, Bronzeville, and Lincoln Square, publishing fantastic poems, stories, and essays that evoked the spirit of these neighborhoods. The Anthology also co-hosted Chi Lit in August, an event that featured poets and storytellers reading pieces about the Chicago neighborhoods, packing Cole's and raising $628 for youth literacy.
For 2014, the Anthology is moving to a rolling submission model. That means that, instead of contained submission periods for a few neighborhoods at a time, you can now submit a poem or story for any neighborhood at any time. It may be in the negative temperatures outside, but it's the perfect time to sit down and pen a Humboldt Park poem, Bridgeport story, or whatever else strikes your fancy!
