Twin Cities Runoff


The Twin Cities Runoff wants to tell stories. We want to see our spectacular seven-county metro area through as many viewpoints as possible, draw the connections between our people and our surroundings, and expand the definition of “culture.” We want our readers to engage with the streets of their commutes and their communities and to expect more than highlights and opinions. We want to know and share what’s going on.

Runoff is what is left over and not absorbed by the ground after it rains, or when piles and piles of snow are melting. Runoff flows through the streets and lawns, collecting dirt and trash and treasure and bringing it to the river, so it can start all over again. Our magazine is the reading runoff: what got missed in the main streams of the news cycle and lifestyle publications.
