Founded in 1995 by graduate students of the Western Michigan University English department, Third Coast is one of the nation’s premier literary magazines—and one of only a handful of nationally distributed literary magazines to regularly include four genres. Third Coast consistently publishes excellent, and often award-winning, fiction, poetry, non-fiction and drama.

In the past year, two published stories and one poem have been chosen to appear in the O Henry Award Series, The Pushcart Prize Series, and Best of the West: New Stories from the Wide Side of the Missouri.
