Selected Memories: Five Years of Hippocampus Magazine (Essays)


Product Description

From coming of age tales to trials of online dating or overcoming fears… from the grittiness and hardship of this American life to celebratory life events… from small moments to major milestones…this collection provides 33 slices of life.

Selected Memories: Five Years of Hippocampus Magazine is a celebration of where we’ve been and a testament to the power of telling true stories. Since we launched our journal in 2010, we’ve published more than 600 pieces of creative nonfiction from more than 500 emerging and established writers. We’re proud of our contributors, and we admire their bravery for sharing pieces of themselves.
