BRISTOL, R.I. -- Looking for stories from independent writers, and cutting-edge art? Find it in the latest issue of “Mount Hope,” the Roger Williams University literary magazine (now in its third issue),available online and on campus.
The publications staff is already hard at work on an upcoming fourth issue of “Mount Hope,” a literary magazine produced by students from start to finish, to be released in the fall. Under the direction of Edward Delaney, students solicit and vet submissions from authors, photographers and artists from around the country. Working as a publishing team, they decide upon the mix of work to include and the layout of the magazine. It’s a wonderful professional experience in the literary and publishing world for students, says Delaney, a professor of communication and creative writing at RWU.
The current issue features fiction by Providence novelist Hester Kaplan, poetry by Spanish author Ana Merino (translated by Toyisha Kamei) and photography by Jean-Christian Bourcart, among others.
“Mount Hope is committed to supporting writers and the community of writers by publishing emerging authors alongside established ones. We hope the RWU community will enjoy what we produce,” Delaney says.
Copies of “Mount Hope” are available at the literary magazine office in Global Heritage Hall 201. Single issues are $10; a two-year subscription is $35. Readers can also enjoy the publication online.
