Victor David Giron, Curbside Splendor publisher, admires:

MAKE: A Chicago Literary Magazine It wasn't until I decided to start my indie press, Curbside Splendor, a couple of years ago that I discovered so many great publishers and literary journals existed here in Chicago. One of our local literary gems is MAKE magazine, a not-for-profit semiannual journal and active producer of literary events that was started in 2005. I recently attended the release party for its 13th issue, "Exchange/Intercambio," at the Hairpin Lofts building in Logan Square. What caught my eye about this particular issue is that it's the first bilingual issue the magazine has published. It features great short stories, poetry, and nonfiction presented in both English and Spanish, featuring outstanding pieces by local writers such as Adam Levin and Megan Stielstra. As is the standard with MAKE, the issue is highly designed and a treat to look at. As a first generation Mexican-American who is starting a bilingual imprint called Concepción Books, it's exciting to see another group playing tribute to my native language.
