The SUN | 7:00 PM
Since 1974 The Sun has published an eclectic mix of essays, interviews, fiction, and poetry that addresses the splendor and heartache of being human. Each monthly issue features radically intimate and socially conscious writing that touches anyone with an open heart and a curious mind. In an age of media conglomerates, it’s something of an oddity: an ad-free, independent, reader-supported magazine with more than 70,000
subscribers. January 2019 marked the forty-fifth anniversary of The Sun. more >>>
