"In Guildworks you will hear voices as individual and powerful as those you will find in any urban collection of poetry and prose. They are representative of a people who live in a part of Chicago that refuses to be judged by what it lacks but, rather, by what it contributes to the life of a city that well knows how it feels to be perceived as a cultural stepchild. All labels aside, we are proud to introduce to a larger audience the best of the West Side Writers Guild."
