About the Lit & Luz Festival

Held each fall in Chicago and each February in Mexico City, the Lit & Luz Festival is a unique series of readings, discussions, and performances featuring renowned authors from the United States and Mexico. The festival highlights new translations and artistic collaborations that promote contemporary literature from both countries.

Begun in 2014, the Lit & Luz Festival grew out of the pages of  MAKE magazine’s Intercambio portfolio. This Spanish-language cultural exchange has appeared in every issue since its debut in 2012 and has featured over 40 writers to date, many in English translation for the first time.

Lit & Luz is produced by MAKE Literary Productions, NFP.
