At Hippocampus Magazine, we enjoy staying in touch with our contributors, our Hippocampus family! We love hearing about and sharing the continued achievements of these writers, as well as those of our volunteer team members and past conference speakers.

Each issue, or as often as we have enough updates to create a new post, we like to share their good news! These were updates we received (or, in some cases, discovered on our own) between the release of our May/June issue release and July 10.

A big congratulations to all! (Submit your news here for inclusion a future update.)

Shebana Coelho presented excerpts from her solo play, The Good Manners of Colonized Subjects at the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre’s NuWorks festival in New York in June 2019.


Anita Gill’s latest essay, “A Celibate Marriage,” was published in the Summer 2019 issue of Prairie Schooner. Her essay, “Bhangra,” was a finalist for the Penelope Niven Prize in Creative Nonfiction. Starting this fall, she will be a Fulbright Fellow to Spain to conduct research for a novel.


Yolande House published a new essay about her hearing impairment, “Studying the Conversation,” in Joyland Magazine in June. She also has an essay forthcoming with The Rumpus for their ENOUGH series.


Suzanne Farrell Smith’s essay “If You Find a Mouse on a Glue Trap,” published in Brevity, will be included in the 2020 edition of the Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses anthology.
