About three years ago my friend CJ mentioned to me that her book group was reading a magazine for that month’s selection. She said she thought I would enjoy it. I purchased my first copy of The Sun. I loved it. That Christmas I asked for a subscription.
The Sun is chock full of heartfelt, beautiful prose. And, they manage to publish without including any advertising in the magazine. Reading my copy is something I look forward to each month.
One of my favorite parts of The Sun is the Readers Write section. Each month they have a theme on which readers can submit their writing. For example, Rain or Selling Out or Anger. The stories in these brief responses to a word prompt often leave me in awe of the strength and honesty of these readers who are also writers.
I’m thrilled and honored that my own submission on the theme, The Dinner Table, appears in the March 2009 issue of The Sun. You can check it out here.
