Welcome to the Chicago Headline Club — the Chicago area’s most important organization for journalists!
We’re here for every journalist, no matter your contribution to the craft and whether you’re looking for ethics advice, a new job or public records. Our scholarships and grants help fledgling careers and fund new investigative projects. Each year we welcome hundreds of submissions to the annual Peter Lisagor Awards, the leading measure of top quality journalism in the Chicago area.
Our members are from all levels and walks of the profession, from top editors to newbies, from print to broadcast to online. Our 400-some members belong to the local chapter of the 9,000-member Society of Professional Journalists, founded in 1909 and the nation’s oldest journalism group. The Chicago Headline Club, the largest local SPJ chapter, turned 90 this year!
