MAKE Literary Productions, NFP | Crazy Season by Paul Graham

Friday night, and Rick Potts couldn’t afford to buy dinner at the Thirsty Moose before the Pioneers’ game. Donnie expected dinner out tonight, though, so Rick had to think of something. There was always his mother’s, if he felt like a lecture, but he didn’t.

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.
