My short story recently published in The Sun magazine’s Readers Write

Top of the mornin’ to ya, friends! You may have heard of The Sun magazine. They are one of the most respected and widely distributed literary magazines out there. Every time I go to my favorite local organic grocery store, I pick up a copy. I love their frank, raw essays and poetry.

The Sun has a section called “Readers Write,” where they ask readers to submit stories based on a theme. They only ask that the story be short and honest, without any frilly language.

Well, the piece I submitted in response to their theme “Boyfriends and Girlfriends” was published in their most recent issue (June 2020)! Basically the piece is about why it’s important to try to stay together with someone who does not share your political views.

  1. Huh? If this was a “short story”, it didn’t belong in Readers Write, which is supposed to be nonfiction. It is in the July issue, not the June, and it certainly reads as nonfiction.
