Isthmus is a print journal of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry published biannually in Seattle, Washington. Our goal is to produce a thoughtful, memorable reading experience that showcases a range of styles and perspectives. We hope to bring a little of Seattle to the world and a little of the rest of the world to Seattle.
