Chicago Literati is a 501c3 organization, a nonprofit online literary magazine open to all. We pride ourselves on our inclusive and evocative content, ranging from film reviews and think pieces to short fiction and original artwork. We value exploration and ingenuity, and those values are reflected in content we share.
As an assistant editor, I donate my time and expertise to this publication because I admire its mission. I have only recently learned what it takes to run a nonprofit literary magazine, and I assure you, it does not come cheaply. We have bills to pay — lots of them, and sometimes we worry if we can continue to run this magazine to the high standards our readers have come to expect.
If you are also an admirer of Chicago Literati, now is the time to come to its aid. You can help us keep our beloved magazine a place for artists of all kinds to come together and express themselves with a tax-deductible donation. If you enjoy our content, consider supporting our artistic mission with a monthly donation. Consider your monthly contribution an investment — partial ownership in our little corner of society where creative minds meet and explore the world we live in. Enjoy each issue knowing that you had direct impact on the stories on our pages, and feel proud knowing that you’ve supported Chicago Literati and its mission to better understand our human condition through thought-provoking art.
