The SLF (Speculative Literature Foundation) is pleased to announce the formation of its Chicago Chapter. The charter of the Chicago Chapter is to carry on the purpose of the SLF with a more regional focus. The aim of the organization is to encourage promising new writers, assist established writers, facilitate the work of quality magazines and small presses, and develop a greater public appreciation of speculative fiction.  The Chicago SLF Chapter, in close partnership with Volumes Bookcafe (, will continue the successful and long-running Deep Dish Reading series and hopes to expand the program in 2020 so as to include additional sessions, venues and networking/educational activities. 

The Chicago Chapter of the Speculative Literature Foundation is free to join! Check out the chapter’s Facebook group and stay up to date with our events page and 2020 Events Calendar to meet us in person!
