About

Progressive (adj.): ( 1.) a : of, relating to, or characterized by progress; b : making use of or interested in new ideas, findings, or opportunities; ( 5. ) often capitalized : of or relating to political Progressives.

Chick, pronounced [chik] ( noun ): Usage note: Originally it was perceived as insulting because of the perception that it infantilized women. Now the word has been embraced by some women as a positive term of self-reference and an expression of camaraderie.

We’re a progressive blogger collective based in the 77 Square Miles Surrounded by Reality–i.e. Madison, Wisconsin. Each of us writes about whatever suits her fancy, be it political activism, cooking, literature, music, or rants about our personal lives. We post at least 3x a week, so tune in.

To make ProgChik a shared creative space,  we’re starting Writing Prompt Sundays. Every Sunday, one of us will choose a prompt, and you, the readers, can post your responses in the comments throughout the week. Hell, we might post ours too. Sound fun? Join in!

ProgChik also makes Earth friendly bottle cap art. If you’d like to support us, check out our Etsy site.
