FAQ

Can I write for the Chicago Review of Books?
If you’re interested in becoming a contributor (reviews, interviews, features, essays), send us an email at chireviewofbooks@gmail.com, and maybe read this post first. If you’re pitching a specific book for a review or interview, please note that our coverage is usually, with a few exceptions, timed to coincide with a book’s publication. Also note that we are currently all volunteers; here’s a good list of paying outlets.

I’m a writer. Can I submit my own book for review?
Due to the small size of our contributing staff, we are unable to respond to review queries from individual authors.

Do you only cover Chicago-related books?
No!
