The Printers’ Ball is an annual celebration of print literature in Chicago, hosted by Newcity, Poetry, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), in collaboration with CHIRP, MAKE: A Chicago Literary Magazine, Proximity Magazine, Stop Smiling, Venus Zine, and over 100 local literary organizations. The event showcases a diverse selection of print publications, available free of charge, including magazines, journals, weeklies, posters, and broadsides, plus a full night of live entertainment.
