Join the Symbolia Magazine team and Hacks/Hackers Chicago to celebrate the launch of a home-grown news venture at Matilda’s on Monday December 10th, 6:30 p.m.
Symbolia is a tablet-based magazine that merges comic books, illustration, and in-depth journalism. Read about Symbolia in the Chicago Tribune, The National, and the Columbia Journalism Review.
You’ll get to see Symbolia in action, learn how interactive illustrated journalism is produced, chat with cofounders Erin Polgreen and Joyce Rice, and, most importantly, celebrate with food and drink!
Good times will be had. All are welcome–but space is limited, so RSVP today.

The San Francisco Chronicle has embarked on a new membership program aimed at increasing reader loyalty, and the renewal rate… Lots of newspapers have experimented with paid premium content and membership as a revenue strategy, but the Chronicle’s program is free with any subscription package. Though some events on offer might involve a small fee, the program’s end goal isn’t to make money, but to repair the relationship between the newspaper and its audience.
