Hanging Loose

Total Issues: 105 (as at Aug-2015)

The first issue of Hanging Loose magazine was published in 1966. The editors are proud of having published many first books, including the first full collections by Sherman Alexie, Kimiko Hahn. The name was inspired by the format -- mimeographed loose pages in a cover envelope -- and that, in turn, was inspired by a very low budget. But the format was also meant to get across a point of view: that poetry is for now, not for the Ages. If you liked a poem, you could pin it to the wall. If you didn't like a poem, you could use it as a napkin. Circulation 2,000.
