Chicago Literary Hall of Fame Logo

Since the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame’s inception, we’ve relied on partners to help stage talks, ceremonies, workshops, exhibits and so forth. Without these partners, the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame could not make such vital contributions to our literary life, nor so successfully work to strengthen our literary community. Some of our partnerships have been brief but important, but in many cases our collaborations are frequent, even ongoing.

We are grateful to have received generous grants from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Chicago Community Trust, the Chicago Park District, the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Illinois Humanities, and Poetry Foundation.
