The Sun Magazine

The next time you have work that’s ready to submit, why not send it to us?the sun magazine

The Sun is a reader-supported ad-free magazine. We’ve been described in many ways: celebratory, fierce, unflinching, thoughtful, truthful, dark, darkly funny, tender. Contributors tell us that after their work reaches more than 70,000 engaged Sun readers, they often hear from old friends and new admirers.

To save your time and ours, we suggest you take a look at The Sun before submitting. We’ve provided some samples below.

“I’m looking for a writer who doesn’t know where her sentence is leading her; a writer who starts with her obsessions and whose heart is bursting with love; a writer sly enough to give the slip to her secret police, the ones with the power to condemn in the blink of an eye. It’s all right that she doesn’t know what she’s thinking until she writes it, as if the words already exist somewhere and draw her to them. She may not know how she got there, but she knows when she’s arrived.” — Sy Safransky Editor and Publisher of The Sun


Writing from The Sun has won the Pushcart Prize and been selected for the Best American Essays and Best American Short Stories anthologies.

We publish nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. We tend to favor personal writing, but we’re also looking for provocative pieces on political and cultural issues.

We encourage submissions from writers of color.

Surprise us; we often don’t know what we’ll like until we read it.

We rarely run anything longer than seven thousand words; there’s no minimum length.

We discourage simultaneous submissions.

Writing is a solitary act, but when what you’ve written goes out to our loyal subscribers, it can feel a little less so.

What We Pay

Nonfiction: $300 to $2,000

Fiction: $300 to $2,000

Poetry: $100 to $250
