Another Chicago Magazine began in 1977 as a publication to showcase work of University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (as it was called) graduate creative writing students. ACM published as part of Left Field Press before becoming a subsidiary for a few years of the fine indie publisher Curbside Splendor. ACM‘s last print issue was #54. Two online issues came after. Then we decided we’d like to publish new work more frequently. Look for a new piece of fiction, nonfiction, drama, poetry, art, or a review, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Keep on top of things by subscribing and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
We honor the peoples whose ancestral homelands were taken from them during the settling of Chicago. This land is sacred to many Indigenous peoples, including the Bodwéwadmik (Potawatomi), Ojibwe, and Odawa – together forming The Council of Three Fires – as well as the Peoria, Kaskaskia, Mascouten, myaamiaki (Miami), Ho-Chunk, Kiikaapoa (Kickapoo), Sac and Fox, and Menominee peoples.
These communities are and continue to be the rightful stewards of this land, water, and ecology, in spite of settler colonial violence and displacement. In addition we acknowledge Chicago’s large urban Indigenous population, and recognize those who honor their ancestors, traditions, and this land. We at Another Chicago Magazine are guests here, and as such we promise to respect those whose home this place is and the land we call Chicago.
