New Hot Topics in Writing Episode: Literature After Dark

Hot Topics in Writing, the UCWbL’s podcast, has released the second installment of a three part series about resources for writers in Chicago!

In our last episode, we looked at physical publications to which writers could submit their work.  For our newest episode, we put down our magazines and hit the streets, taking you with us as we visit venues where writers may read their own work as well as listen to others share their work. We attended three different writing events around the city: Essay Fiesta at the Book Cellar, the Uptown Poetry Slam at the Green Mill, and Reading Under the Influence at Sheffield’s for their themed event, “Poisons.”
