Hippocampus is Growing: New Editors, Writers Join Staff

amye barrese archer

Amye Archer joins the Hippocampus staff as Interviews Editor. We're welcoming about a dozen new staff members today.

Bigger hippocampus. Better memories. That’s how I imagine it would work inside the human brain. The same could be said for the growth of Hippocampus Magazine. We’re pleased to welcome a talented new group to our existing team of dedicated readers, writers and editors.

Our new writers and editors are published authors, journalists, teachers, librarians and lovers of creative nonfiction—all had impressive resumes and publishing credits and I am super-thrilled each was drawn to Hippocampus Magazine and its mission to engage, entertain and educate. This new group spans the country—and the continents—from Seattle to Boston (two of my favorite cities!) to across the pond. I couldn’t be more proud of this vibrant group and I look forward to their contributions.

Along with these new positions comes an expanded content selection. Articles about the writing life and the craft of creative nonfiction will grace the pages of each issue, thanks in part to our new collection of contributing writers. More reviews of memoir and craft books will be featured, thanks to the addition of a reviews editor and two new reviewers. And, look for interviews from recognizable names in creative nonfiction—and names you are sure to hear more from soon. And, of course, each issue will continue to feature fresh, new works creative nonfiction.
