MAKE Literary Productions has two core programs: the Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and
Art and MAKE Literary Magazine. These two programs provide the umbrellas for additional spin-off
The Lit & Luz Festival is MAKE's largest program in terms of capacity, resources, and live audience
reach. The two-part festival is a large-scale, international artistic exchange between Chicago and

the following winter.
After publishing its eighteenth issue print issue, MAKE Literary Magazine is transitioning to a fully online
publication--with the occasional print project.
