Ready to Get Involved?
Our students come from all walks of life, all ages, and all kinds of writing experience, and we want you to be a part of our community!
If you’re interested in writing, StoryStudio has something for you.
Bring StoryStudio to Work
Do you and your team need to write better at work? Learn how we can create a customized training program to help you communicate more clearly and tell your company’s story with confidence and creativity.
Attend An Open House
StoryStudio Chicago offers free Open Houses several times a year, giving new writers the chance to see the studio, meet the staff, and write with us before signing up for a class. Email us to be notified of when our next Open House will take place.

B the change
StoryStudio Chicago is a certified B corporation and an Illinois Benefits Corporation. This means we believe in using business as a force for good. You can read our StoryStudio 2013 B Corp Annual Report. You can also read more about B Corps in Illinois here. We area always on the lookout for other for-profit businesses who would like to join this movement. Just send us a note for more information.
StoryStudio Gives Back
We love knowing our neighbors near and far. That’s why every chance we get, StoryStudio partners with literary and neighborhood organizations. In 2013 we spent our 10th anniversary volunteering with a different community organization each month. In 2014 we changed from charging a fee for our write-in events and instead asked our writers to bring in food and supplies for our local shelter, Care for Real. In 2015, it’s all about Chicago! Look for StoryStudio at events in our Ravenswood neighborhood and throughout Chicago in B Corp and City-sponsored initiatives.
