Donate to Hanging Loose Press

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.   


So if you can find it in your heart and pockets to add us to your end-of-year donations list, we will put your money to good use.If you can give at the $75 level, we will send you a curated 2-book set from our backlist. Just let us know which set you’d like, A or B.

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 writers;
-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 the forhcoming collaboration of poems and paintings by Bob and Elizabeth Hershon titled The Unveiling

Sending you all best wishes for a bright and joyous 2023 (and we’ll put in a good word with the Ogre for you!) 

Thank you for your support.
