Third Wednesday is the outgrowth of a monthly writer’s workshop begun by a group of poets who met at an Ann Arbor, Michigan bookstore every third Wednesday. We recognize that the need for another literary anthology is moot, but feel the importance of publishing the work of today’s modern creative minds is inarguable. Third Wednesday provides yet another outlet for experienced writers and artists to see their work in print. The primary impetus for this endeavor is to publish the poetic voices that strike us most deeply. In deciding to expand the publication to include short fiction and artwork, we hope to serve and court a broader range of contributors and to more comprehensively supply the imaginative cravings of a hungry public.
