Who we are,  what we do,  and why we do it together.

Mike Matthews is a Chicago native passionate about the Windy City, the people, and most of all, the stories that fill its bustling streets.  He established North Avenue Publishing as a creative writers' co-op to provide focus group participants exclusive access to original works, including those in development, and to offer other writers the same valuable access and benefits of having a focus group for their own projects.

​​​Where Windy City Writers Shine

What is a Windy City Writer?

Writers who rely on family and friends often find themselves with less than fruitful feedback when trying to write at their best level.  Having a focus group​ for your current project can be the best investment of your limited time.  Not to mention all the research devoted to the business of getting published​.  The science behind developing and maintaining a focus group for your project is what makes North Avenue Publishing​ ​so valuable to the creative process.  We help you from concept to cashing your first royalty check.
