Spring Thaw is an annual literary and arts magazine produced by faculty and students at Minnesota North College - Itasca in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. It has published continuously since 1970.
Spring Thaw looks to publish work from both emerging and established writers and artists. We seek work from a variety of voices and styles; however, works firmly anchored in genre (romance, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.) are unlikely to be accepted.
As we are nestled and sculpted from the natural landscape and rural community that surrounds us, we seek voices and work with strength and resiliency, whether in the form of character or image. We especially look to amplify the myriad voices and experiences of artists and writers living in the northern reaches of the Midwest region (MN, MI, ND, WI) or of work that features it.
