:: introduction


: : : IMAGINARY YEAR is a serialized narrative which documented the experiences of a group of fictional Chicagoans from 2000-2005. New installments to the story appeared most Mondays and Fridays.

If you want to start from the very beginning, visit this archive: the earliest entries are indexed there. But you may feel free to begin reading Imaginary Year from any point. Start with any character, and explore their past entries as curiosity strikes you. A brief introduction to the cast members can be found here.

If you prefer to read on paper, visit the print archive, where you can download segments in PDF format. It's incomplete, but there's enough there to give you quite a bit to chew on.

Imaginary Year was written and designed by Jeremy P. Bushnell, and was supported in part by a Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Illinois Arts Council Access Program.
