Mission Statement

HMS empowers adults by teaching creative writing techniques; our independent press amplifies emerging and established writers’ work by giving their words a visible home.


HMS is a Chicago-based arts and culture nonprofit and recipient of grants from the Illinois Arts Council and the City of Chicago’s CityArts Department of Cultural Affairs. We are firmly rooted in the belief that engaging the creative mind is essential to both individual and community health. HMS is one of the only literary organizations that combines social justice work with literary citizenship. To this end, HMS offers free writing workshops to Chicago-area adults-in collaboration with local nonprofits including Above & Beyond Family Recovery Center, Breakthrough Urban Ministries, St. Leonard's Ministries and, in 2021, Lawndale Christian Health Center, Thresholds, and the Cook County Prison-looking to learn techniques to tell and write personal narratives and fictional stories. In 2019, we began publishing our nonprofit students’ writing in our print journal and online.
