I first consider the formulation and properties of a new skew family of distributions on the real line which includes the (symmetric) Student t distributions as special cases. The family can be obtained through a simple generalization of a representations of the t distribution in Cacoullos (1965). I go on to explore briefly two ways in which bivariate distributions with skew t margins can be developed.
