Write ON Chicago urges us to consider the vital role city spaces play in our lives—open or dense, green or concrete, struggling or thriving, and everything in-between. By humanizing the city map with our stories, we hope to reveal ways our city might at once persevere and be remade.

THE COMFORT STATION—an historic municipal building re-purposed as an art gallery and performance space—is located right off Logan Square and easily accessible from the #74 Fullerton bus, the #76 Diversey bus, and the #56 Milwaukee bus, as well as the Logan Square Blue Line stop, and the event is happening during the weekly farmer’s market on Logan Boulevard.

Support for this event comes from the DePaul University Department of English and the DePaul Humanities Center.
