Founded by

Between them, Amy Davis and Pat Cronin have nearly forty years of experience writing, editing, and teaching in Chicago—including teaching at Columbia College-Chicago, founding WorkShirts fiction writing workshops and reading series, editing the former literary annual Fish Stories, and publishing in a variety of literary journals and newspapers. After years of working in numerous settings, Amy and Pat knew they wanted to create a more ideal "third space" for writers. During that process they researched writing workspaces across the U.S., listened to writers’ requests, and came up with a model specifically for Chicago-area writers.
