Contango is a Chicago-based journal founded in 2016. Each edition solicits contributions from writers and artists that critically address a current social issue. While the future is never certain, the bets we make on it determine not only its outcome but also the present. In an economy where information is power, knowing how to control the future becomes the most lucrative privilege.

We currently have distribution at the following locations—


The Graham Foundation

City Lit


Woman & Children First

New York:

The New Museum

McNally Jackson
