Sarah White's most recent book is Alice Ages and Ages (BlazeVOX). She is a frequent contributor to Hanging Loose and lives in New York.
The first issue of Hanging Loose magazine was published in 1966. The name was inspired by the format ó mimeographed loose pages in a cover envelope ó and that, in turn, was inspired by a very low budget. But the format was also meant to get across a point of view: that poetry is for now, not for the Ages. If you liked a poem, you could pin it to the wall. If you didnít like a poem, you could use it as a napkin.
