The Pushcart-Prize-nominated CCLaP Weekender is the weekly e-magazine of the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, a 40-page PDF released for free download here every Friday morning. Each issue contains one photography feature from an international artist, one new piece of fiction, and a grid-style look at all the Chicago literary events that will be taking place across the city over the next seven days. To submit a story, suggest a photographer, or add an event to our calendar, please contact us at cclapcenter [at] gmail.com
