Abstract: 
There is no question of the strength of the writing that has come from this city-Algren, Castillo, Brooks, Bellow, Farrell; Sandburg, etc. etc. But there was no journal striving to showcase that Chicago style of writing-a style that is so often shunned or misunderstood. So here it is...After Hours...a showcase of Chicago writers and artists. -taken from issue.
