Editorial Focus

For more than half a century, Hanging Loose Press has championed and the work of groundbreaking poets and writers whose work has been marginalized by mainstream publishing--work frequently less visible, whether because of gender, race, age, class or socioeconomic status.  We look onward towards another half century of our commitment to making the tent as big as we can make it. 

Tips From the Editor

Please send up to six poems or one story at a time. We rarely publish nonfiction, but there are exceptions. We do not publish reviews. For more information, please see the submissions information on our website.  Please note that we do not accept simultaneous submissions and we thank you in advance for your understanding.
