Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Sun is an ad-free monthly magazine of essays, interviews, fiction, poetry, and photography. We strive to make it authentically intimate and socially conscious, to connect the personal to the political, and to illuminate enduring truths about the human condition. Our editorial focus is on work that is intimate and unflinching — the type of thing you might tell to a good friend; work that doesn’t shy away from grappling with the social and political issues that influence our lives.
