826CHI Pausing Programs to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19

To the 826CHI community,

Ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our community is our highest priority at 826CHI. After monitoring developments from the Center for Disease Control and the Chicago Department of Public Health, we have decided to pause our programs and close the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co. until further notice.

In the meantime, we encourage you to support our tuition-free writing programs by making a purchase at the Secret Agent Supply's online store or by making a donation to 826CHI.

We will be in communication about our program, store, and general operations in the days to come. Please email info@826chi.org with any questions.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Take care of yourselves, take care of each other, and take care of those in your community who may be more vulnerable than you. We look forward to seeing you back in our writing lab soon.


The 826CHI Team
