First official meeting of the Speculative Literature Foundation

Hey, folks. So we’re having our first official meeting of the Speculative Literature Foundation’s first official chapter this Sunday. (At my house.) Woot!

In 2020, Chicago chapter membership will be free; we’d love to get together with other folks (readers, writers, parents, teens, teachers, and more) who love science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, fairy tales, folklore — anything with a fantastical or speculative element.

We’ve been running a reading series (Deep Dish) in Chicago at Volumes Cafe for the past three years, but we want to do more. What exactly? It depends on what chapter members are excited to have happen — SF/F book club? Writing workshop? Lit festival? Something else we haven’t thought of?

We’re excited to bring even more events and programs to the Chicagoland area but need your help and ideas to grow even bigger.

Food, friends, drinks and games. (I’ll be cooking.  )


3 – 5PM: Open Meeting to discuss plans for the 2020 season. Refreshments will be served.

5 – 8PM: Potluck dinner, games and break outs to discuss the craft of writing, networking and all around hanging out.
