The Guild Literary Complex decided to celebrate it's 25th Anniversary by naming 25 Writers to Watch, and I'm honored to be included on the list, among such luminaries as Megan Stielstra, Kathleen Rooney, Bill Hillman, Rebecca Kling, and Jacob Knabb. For a full list of the other writers on the list and more information about each of them, visit the Guild site.
The mission of the Guild is one I've long admired: "To present and support diverse, divergent, and emerging voices through programming that is as dynamic as Chicago itself. Actively working with individuals and organizations from all of Chicago’s many neighborhoods, the Guild seeks to connect seemingly disparate groups and geographies through literature—bringing unexpected writers, programs, and audiences together." I'm humbled to be in the company of the Guild itself, and the others on this list.
