Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Rain Taxi champions literary culture through the publication of reviews, interviews, and essays, publishing a chapbook series, and by hosting live literary events in the twin cities. Rain Taxi exists for readers and writers, literary publishers of all shapes and sizes, booksellers, educators, and kindred spirits who want books to flourish.
The print publication 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 each quarter as well. Together, the two publications offer readers a broad look at the noteworthy writing and art being published today.
Rain Taxi is run by a dedicated staff including Editor Eric Lorberer, published poet, essayist, critic and speaker/advocate for independent publishing and literary culture; Art Director and Business Manager Kelly Everding, UMass M.F.A. and author of the poetry chapbook Strappado for the Devil (Etherdome Press, 2004); and Editorial Assistant Alex Brubaker, B.A. Millersville University whose interests include 20th Century Eastern European Literature, David Foster Wallace, and the American Transcendentalists.
