Visitors use typewriters at the American Writers Museum

AWM Story of the Week

Every week, the AWM is excited to bring you stories written by our visitors in our Story of the Day exhibit, which features typewriters that visitors can interact with directly. Check back weekly for new stories, and visit the Museum to try out our typewriters and possibly be featured here! This week, we’ve been thinking about the changing seasons.


It’s been hot this week, making us all want to soak in the last of the summer beauty of the city.

Chicago. Your beauty rises as high as your towering giants, from the depths of your watery soul. I will return to breathe in the music of this beautiful city, as sweet as an ice cream cone on the lake’s edge at sunset.

puts a chill on reveries
you’re fall,
a misty morning, sitting
that’s all
a thirsty leaf, regretting
