The South Side Weekly is a nonprofit newsprint magazine and radio show dedicated to supporting cultural and civic engagement on the South Side, and to providing educational opportunities for developing journalists, writers, and artists.

We publish in-depth coverage of the arts and issues of public interest alongside oral histories, poetry, fiction, interviews, and artwork from local photographers and illustrators.

The Weekly is produced by an all-volunteer editorial staff and seeks contributions from across the city. We distribute the paper each Wednesday in the fall, spring, and winter, with short breaks during March and December. Over the summer we publish bi-weekly. A full map of our distribution network is available here.

If you have submissions, story ideas, comments, or questions, you can reach us by phone at (773) 234-5388, by email at editor@southsideweekly.com, or by mail at:
