For more than half a century, Hanging Loose has championed the work of authors marginalized by mainstream publishing—work frequently less visible, whether because of gender, race, age, class or socioeconomic status.
BUT WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT
Much of our funds go into our mission of broadening our creative and cultural scope:
-by inviting distinguished writers to be guest editors and to choose the work of exciting writers, some we may not even be aware of;
-by collaborating with Queens College on our annual Loose Translation Prize for publication of a book translated by a student in the Creative Writing and Translation MFA program, an exciting way to find international voices in new translations;
-by continuting to devote a section of our magazine to the writing of talented high school writer-by creating the Founders Award, to recognize and publish annually a first book of poems, in honor of Emmett Jarrett, Ron Schreiber, and Robert Hershon, the three of our four founding editors now deceased.
And we look forward to forhcoming books by a roster of talented writers, including a collaboration of poems and paintings by Bob and Elizabeth Hershon titled The Unveiling.
Thank you for your support.
