Review: Sunny Days Spent with The Sun
July seems like a great time to talk about the magazine called The Sun, although this makes for great reading year-round.
The Sun is an independent, ad-free monthly magazine that, in their words, “invokes the splendor and heartache of being human.” The Sun celebrates life AND complexity. The personal essays, short stories, interviews, poetry, and photographs explore the challenges we face and the moments when we rise to meet those challenges.
The magazine publishes the work of emerging and established artists who are striving to be thoughtful and authentic. Writing from The Sun has won the Pushcart Prize, been published in Best American Short Stories and Best American Essays, and been broadcast on National Public Radio.
Without a doubt, my favorite section is called Readers Write, which includes content submitted by readers, who address topics as varied as Telling the Truth, Neighbors, Hiding Places, Second Chances, and Gambling.
Want to find out more about how others experience life? This magazine will give you all the perspective you need.
