The South Side Weekly is a newsprint magazine for and about the arts, culture, and politics of the South Side of Chicago. The Weekly is based out of the University of Chicago and distributed across the South Side each Wednesday of the academic year. All submissions welcome.
In fall 2013, the Weekly reformed itself as an independent, student-directed organization. The paper’s operations—printing and distribution—are funded entirely through advertising. Previously, the paper was known as the Chicago Weekly.
