Daniel Wuebben teaches us what bouquets of flowers mean, such as: “Where was your discretion last night?” and “The fiercest flame requires to be fed” in his short piece, “Say Everything (With Flowers)” with illustrations by Aya Yamasaki from MAKE #14.
The fourteenth issue of MAKE Literary Magazine focuses on visual culture, toying with the ideas of perception and image. The journal itself is stunning—a mix of colored, white, and black pages that proclaims on its front, “All colors, are, in fact, here.” It’s a line plucked from Cristina Rivera Garza’s poem “I. Despejar” or “I. To Clear.” And it fits perfectly, given that MAKE has a little bit of everything—poetry, fiction, nonfiction, book reviews, artists’ portfolios, an interview, translations, and comics are all represented and flow together flawlessly for fulfilling, well-rounded read.NewPages review by Robyn Campbell

Oh, wow! And OuterArtist also wrote about the recent panel at StoryStudio Chicago:
Last weekend, I attended a panel discussion at StoryStudio Chicago called “Editors Speak: Literary Magazine Panel.” The discussion was moderated by Maria Hlohowskyj, the StoryStudio’s creative programs manager, and featured panelists from Chicago-based literary magazines and book publishers. The lineup included Sarah Dodson, co-founder and executive director of Make Literary Productions, which publishes Make Literary Magazine; Ben Tanzer, director of publicity & content strategy for Curbside Splendor, which publishes books, literary journals and the Curbside Splendor e-zine; and Brian Solem, publisher of Graze Magazine.
On what was a warmer-than-usual Saturday afternoon this March,StoryStudio Chicago hosted a panel of local literary magazine editors in their comfortable loft space in Ravenswood. The room quickly filled up with writers, taking every available seat, and all of them eager to hear what editors had to say about the submission process. The panel of experts included: Sarah Dodson, executive director of MAKE Literary Productions; Ben Tanzer, director of publicity & content strategy for Curbside Splendor; and Brian Solem, co-founder and editor of graze.
