Editorial Focus

 Our editors are also interested in pieces that defy categorization. Regardless of form, we want material that feels fresh. The pieces we accept tend to surprise us and remind us why we fell in love with reading in the first place.  We continually strive to publish authentic work from a multiplicity of perspectives. 

Tips From the Editor

Thin Air Magazine is a graduate-run magazine that begins its reading period for the print magazine in August. The web features, however, are read year long. The reading fee goes towards printing the physical magazine.
