RAIN TAXI, a winner of the Alternative Press Award for Best Arts & Literature Coverage, is a quarterly publication that publishes reviews of literary fiction, poetry, and nonfiction with an emphasis on works that push the boundaries of language, narrative, and genre. Essays, interviews, and in-depth reviews reflect RAIN TAXI's commitment to innovative publishing.

Our print journal is distributed in over 250 locations nationwide-mostly independent bookstores-and is also available by subscription. An accompanying Online Edition, with completely different material, is posted to our website each quarter as well. Together, the two publications offer readers a broad look at the noteworthy writing and art being published today. Rain Taxi also publishes a chapbook series, and hosts a wide range of literary events in the Twin Cities.

Rain Taxi has been nominated five times for the Utne Independent Press Award for Arts & Literature Covergage. Rain Taxi won the distinctive award from Utne in 2000. Thanks Utne!
