Launched in 2011, online literary magazine Hippocampus was first dreamed about by founder and editor Donna Talarico when she was working on her MFA in creative writing at Wilkes University. Talarico wanted to create not just a literary magazine, but also develop a venue to education and inform those interested in reading and writing creative nonfiction.
Their sea horse logo was created since the hippocampus, the part of the brain dealing with memories, is sea-horse-shaped.
Over the years, they have launched a nonfiction writing contest, an annual nonfiction writing conference, and now a book publishing division. They are open to submissions annually from March through December.
Their September 2020 issue features work by Katie Parry, Kirsten Reneau, Rachel Fleishman, Brad Wetherell, Daniel K. Miller, Gwen Niekamp, and more.
