Special edition of TriQuarterly - the literary magazine of Northwestern University and of the MA/MFA in Creative Writing program - focused on Chicago. Edited by graduate students in the program, supervised by faculty, and available around the world, TriQuarterly has remained "an international journal of writing, art, and cultural inquiry." (Abstract taken from: http://www.triquarterly.org/about-triquarterly).
From the introduction: "A Jam Session consists of nonfiction pieces and short stories set in Chicago and completed within the last six years. May of the entries involve sports. That reflects my belief that one can learn insights about themselves and others through the heat of competition. I hope that these works will provide some inspiration, perspective, or perhaps a chuckle."
