Center Square Journal and Roscoe View Journal are online-only news publications focusing exclusively on Chicago’s Lincoln Square, Northcenter and Ravenswood Manor (for Center Square) and Roscoe Village and West Lakeview (for Roscoe View) neighborhoods. The sites are published by a neighborhood resident, is edited by a professional journalist and includes writing from neighborhood residents. There’s a lot going on around here – we want to tell those stories.
We also believe that many of the stories going on in our communities need to be told by you. Perhaps there’s something going on in your neighborhood you’d like to tell. Maybe you want to write the story yourself in the Journal.
We’re looking for volunteer community correspondents, and we’d love to hear from you. Drop us a line.
Thanks for reading the Center Square Journal. We’re glad to be a part of the community.
-Mike Fourcher, Founder/Publisher
