Story Week 2015 is NOW

Columbia College Chicago's annual literary celebration Story Week is back. Events run throughout the end of the week at various venues across the city, culminating on Saturday March 21.

This year's special guests will be leading panels on publishing, hosting live readings and embodying the festival's theme, The Power of Words. Story Week celebrates some notable Chicagoans including Samantha Irby, Audrey Niffenegger, Jessie Ann Foley and Kevin Coval. The festival also welcomes writers and poets of national acclaim such as T. Geronimo Johnson, Garnett Kilberg Cohen, and Edwidge Danticat.

Throughout the week look for event sessions titled Publishing Bootcamp. In these events, guest moderators aim to share their expertise on topics such as finding agents, working with editors, and promoting your work.

All programming is detailed on their web schedule. Events are free and open to the public.
