SunDryed Affairs is an online nonfiction magazine, featuring primarily the work of writers of color. It was born out of the noticeable lack of ethnic diversity in the collective blog arena, a place generally filled with quality writing, yet oftentimes, writing for, by, and about one tiny corner of white America.

The name is a play on the words “sundry,” meaning various, and “sundried,” which calls up images of brown. Our goal is to make a space for writers of color to share an array of ideas, whether on politics or music, travel or family, from the quotidian to the earth-shattering, in an environment that feels inclusive and familiar while still being distinctly fresh.

We publish biweekly on Wednesdays. Subscribe to the magazine to be notified when new posts go up!
