The Sun wins the 2007 Utne Independent Press Award for Best Writing

Posted on: December 20, 2007

The Sun has been selected to receive the 2007 Utne Independent Press Award for Best Writing. For nearly twenty years Utne magazine has honored the best of the independent media: publications that offer perspectives not found in mass-market magazines and newspapers. This is the fifth Independent Press Award The Sun has received.

In its announcement, Utne describes The Sun as “an intimate forum where some of the finest contemporary writers share their most polished, provocative prose, and then everyone else is invited to join in. . . . In Readers Write, one of our favorite sections of the magazine, readers are invited to contribute short pieces on a broad range of topics, such as Airports or Nine To Five, resulting in a lively, nationwide dialogue.” To read more of Utne's announcement and see a complete list of 2007 Independent Press Award recipients, click here.
