Help Wanted

Do you find yourself wandering the aisles of Chicago book stores, looking for your next great read? Do you seldom need to be convinced to go to an author reading or a live lit event? Is Chicago's great literary tradition what keeps you from booking it to California every winter? Then we want to hear from you!

Book Club is looking for new contributors to help beef up our coverage of all things literary in Chicago. We're looking for general Book Club writers, but also those interested in covering specific beats, such as: poetry, live lit previews and reviews, classic Chicago book reviews, bookstore profiles, author profiles, local indie publishing, and any other beat you can drum up!

If you're able to write about Chicago's lit scene a couple times a week, plus a monthly feature-length piece, we'd love to have you join us. (Please note: this is not currently a paid position; we're all volunteers here on Gapers Block.) Send a few writing samples along with a beat preference (if you have one) to lara@gapersblock.com. Don't delay!
