Literary Influence in Chicago?


It was a pleasure to be chosen by New City Chicago as one of the 50 most influential literary figures in Chicago and hell to be on a list with Oprah is always good. Cracked Slab Books has tried over the past three years to publish poets we care about and do something for our local community. Chicago gets short shrift in America's literary scene mostly because all the money is in New York and at Universities while in Chicago we have no money for literary pursuits (excluding the Poetry Foundation).
