UPDATE, MAY 2014: Our apologies, but the CCLaP Journal has been put on hiatus until 2015, when we will have the proper staff and resources to publish it in the full manner it deserves. Instead, please see the smaller e-magazine we're now publishing every Friday, containing the same content as the Journal but just less of it, at the CCLaP Weekender headquarters.

The CCLaP Journal is the monthly magazine of the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, a blend of material already published at our blog with a smattering of exclusive new content. Each issue is offered as a free PDF download here at our website, or as a free "flippable" online version at Issuu.com.
