Jess is an artistic director for MAKE Magazine productions' Lit & Luz Festival

MAKE Literary Production’s 5th annual Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and Art is an ambitious exchange between Mexico City and Chicago. The week-long festival takes place at over a dozen arts venues and universities throughout Chicago, October 13th-20th. The following February, a similar series of events are held in Mexico City. Programs include readings, conversations, and our signature event, the “Live Magazine Show”—which makes its Museum of Contemporary Art debut this year.
