Join us in the joyful work of creating necessary alternatives.

Since 2019, The 3rd Thing has published the work of over 30 artists and writers. We are committed to amplifying the voices of Indigenous people, queer people, people of color and womxn. Our books and time-based projects exceed the bounds of form and genre. They are vast and intimate portals into liberation. They create new possibilities for connection to each other and the world.

We are a volunteer-run organization sustained by readers, generous contributors and the essential imaginative power of our fellow artists and writers. All proceeds from sales and tax deductible donations go to paying our authors and artists and to covering the cost of making their projects. Anything left over goes toward the next project.
