We finished celebrating our 50th anniversary with five great readings and now we’ll hold off until it’s time for the 100th.
But first, our heartfelt thanks to these HL regulars who read their work: Caroline Knox, Pablo Medina, Gerald Fleming, Joanna Fuhrman, Hettie Jones, Tony Towle, Jack Anderson, Kyomi Dong, Bill Christophersen, Kimiko Hahn, Jen Benka, David Lehman, Joan Larkin, Charles North, Bill Zavatsky and Sharon Mesmer.
One important name is missing above – yours! Without your extraordinary support, we never would have been able to publish the wonderful work of these writers or continue reaching out to exciting writers just getting started. We hope we can count on your support and enthusiasm as we move into the next half-century.
This season’s list includes books by Jiwon Choi, Zack Linmark, Jerry Fleming, Karen Locascio (the first winner of our new Ron Schreiber Memorial Award), Dan O’Brien, Jack Anderson, and Rob Gunther’s translation of Ecuadorean novelist Jorge Velasco Mackenzie. Issue 107 of Hanging Loose magazine has work by John Godfrey, Harley Elliott, Donna Dennis, Barbara Hamby, Ron Padgett, Maureen Owen, Linda Norton, Rosalind Brackenbury, and many others – including our regular section of poems by amazing high school writers.
