Like a lot of independent literary magazines and organizations, Hippocampus Magazine is a volunteer-led labor of love. We’ve grown a lot — in reach, readership, and offerings — since our first issue in May 2011.
What was once a mostly editor-subsidized endeavor can no longer sustain itself, financially, alone.
The Friends of Hippocampus Magazine Membership Program allows you to directly impact your fellow writers and the greater literary community, to be a bigger part of an organization you care about. Your kind contribution helps us help other writers through our Writers for Writers Submissions Fund, helps fund our contributor honorariums, and ensures we can cover the costs of running a robust and active online magazine: web hosting, content management, and marketing software/subscriptions; printing, postage, advertising, industry memberships, event space rental, and more.
As an update for 2021, our annual conference was hit incredibly hard by the pandemic. Significant personal funds were required to help cover the losses, and we made the decision to put our conference on indefinite hiatus while we recover and regroup. In short, we need your help now more than ever.
