This collection of Illinois writer’s groups and resources is for freelancers living in the Land of Lincoln, and there are quite a few of them.
We might be crazy for launching this very ambitious project, but we’re dedicated to cataloging the current resources for freelance writers living in Illinois. How comprehensive can we be? Keep watching this space as we compile our list of Illinois resources for freelance writers.
