Now entering our tenth year, Third Wednesday is a finely produced print journal that began as an outgrowth of a monthly writer’s workshop of poets who met at an Ann Arbor, Michigan bookstore every third Wednesday.

Third Wednesday provides a quarterly outlet for both experienced and new writers and artists whose work deserves to be in print, publishing writers, poets and visual artists from all over the world.

A Quarterly Journal of Poetry, Fiction & Art

Fall 2016 Issue is here.
