Levitate Lit Mag Hosts Open Mic

One thing that makes Chicago Chicago is its rich culture and its art scene. Inspiration is everywhere in the city, and there are hundreds of artists here that take advantage of all of Chicago’s inspiration and art by making unique pieces of their own.

All of that art deserves a space to be shared.

Levitate–a Chicago based  literary magazine from the Chicago High School of the Arts–is here to offer that space in two capacities.  First, on Saturday October 30th, in partnership with the Garfield Park Conservatory, Levitate  will be hosting an open mic during their harvest fest. The Harvest Fest itself will include various activities, including healthy foods, food vendors, and crafts such as button making with Ledger Library. The open mic itself is being hosted to highlight the voices of any artists out there who would like to read or showcase their work (fiction, nonfiction and poetry) or just attend and listen to others do the same. Maybe you’ll even meet some new creative souls and click.

Levitate’s mission to showcase others’ work doesn’t end there. They are working on the sixth issue of their literary journal and will begin taking submissions in November. There is no fee to submit, and no requirements other than to send in your best work. Their only goal is to offer the chance to be published to anyone interested in it. This also includes almost all forms of art, fiction, non fiction and visual art.

Come along on Saturday, bring your friends, read your work if you want and even if you don’t, an audience is wanted, and welcomed.
