Chicago Publishes, a new online resource and community for Chicago’s publishing industry, launched its brand-spanking-new (and eye-catching) website today.
A launch party for the website is scheduled for this afternoon. The party begins at 4 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center in the GAR Rotunda and Claudia Cassidy Theater. This event is also a launch for the website ChicagoArtistsResource.org. The event description is as follows:
“Join us to celebrate the launch of two new literary websites: ChicagoPublishes.com and CAR-Literary on ChicagoArtistsResource.org. Don’t miss: *Performances by The Paper Machete (thepapermacheteshow.com) — *A website walk-through by artist researchers — *Free giveaways and prizes — A special happy-hour hosted by the Park Grill (www.parkgrillchicago.com) will follow at 6pm. Sponsored by the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.”
This website will prove to be an invaluable resource for DePaul’s MAE and MAWP students, and I encourage everyone to bookmark the site. The event should be a great networking opportunity as well.
