Publisher’s description: Rain Taxi published its first print issue in January 1996, and quickly built a strong nationwide readership; thousands of copies of our print journal are now distributed in over 150 locations nationwide—mostly independent bookstores—and are also shipped by mail to our members. An accompanying Online Edition, with completely different material, is posted to our website each quarter as well, and together, the two publications offer readers a broad look at the noteworthy literary art being published today.
Rain Taxi is much more than just a magazine, however—we are a literary organization that fosters engagement with innovative writing through multiple programs. The ongoing Rain Taxi Reading Series and annual Twin Cities Book Festival both bring literature to life and provide a public celebration of the literary arts. As a service to our local community, we maintain the Twin Cities Literary Calendar, which lists all events happening in our region.
