Help Us Cover Chicago's Literary Scene

helpwanted.jpgBook Club is looking for new contributors to help us cover 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 more.

If you're passionate about Chicago's lit scene, we'd love to have you join us. As a contributor to Gapers Block, you would be expected to write at least one post a week for the A/C page, plus items for the Slowdown event calendar. Please note: this is not a paid position; we're all volunteers here on Gapers Block. Send a couple writing samples (links are OK) along with a bit about what you'd like to cover to Look forward to hearing from you!
