Co-founder Sarah Dodson, "Make, A Literary Magazine"

"Bartending proved instrumental in how the magazine formed...." Sarah Dodson, Executive Director of Make Literary Productions, reveals the backstory behind the 2005 founding of Make: A Literary Magazine. She also discusses how Make, which she cofounded with writing friends, forges connections among writers and artists spread across the globe. Containing work from writers in the U.S., Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, the latest issue, Exchange/Intercambio, features work translated from Spanish to English and others translated from English to Spanish. Join us for an fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of a literary journal and the minds of the volunteers whose devotion keeps it relevant and fresh. Sarah and other Make writers will be in Iowa City next week for the Mission Creek Festival.
