Chicago literary magazines – Another Chicago Magazine


Founded in 1977 as a vehicle for University of Illinois at Chicago Circle graduate creative writing students, Another Chicago Magazine published 54 print issues, going completely online after their 2016 issue. They were published as a part of Left Field Press, then became a subsidiary of indie publisher Curbside Splendor, and are now independent. They publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, translations, reviews, and art.

Contributors to Another Chicago Magazine have included Charles Bukowski, David Sedaris, Jenny Boully, Kathleen Rooney, Stuart Dybek, and Samantha Irby, among many others. Currently they are doing a series entitled Dispatches from a Pandemic, which are pieces from all over the world, capturing our present moment.

S.L. Wisenberg currently serves as Editor. She was the nonfiction editor from 1997 to 2010. As of this writing they are open for submissions of creative nonfiction, drama, translations, The Loop, audio-visual, art, interviews, and book (and other) reviews, as well as looking for volunteers.
