Submissions: How to get your book reviewed

 

Windy City Reviews is happy to review traditional, indie, or self published books in print and eBook formats. The writer and work must be affiliated with Chicago. The book must have a publication date within the last twelve (12) months. We will also consider pre-publication reviews. While membership in Chicago Writers Association is not required, why not take advantage of all the great benefits, all for only $25. Go to www.chicagowrites.org/membership/ for more information.

We have a team of reviewers with interests in different genres. Please refer to Our Reviewers page to select three reviewers who best fit your work.
