About H_NGM_N


H_NGM_N started in the fall of 2001 by Nate Pritts.  Originally a mimeograph side-stapled poetry zine, H_NGM_N transitioned to the current online format for the journal in 2004. A print chapbook series followed as well as Combatives, a single-author ‘zine side project.

The PDF Chapbook series started in 2009 (& continues today) as an innovative & dynamic way to release short bursts from a diverse group of writers.  Then, in 2010, H_NGM_N released its first full-length book.

H_NGM_N is a way of life, a type of attention.

H_NGM_N is both action & reaction.  It’s the nexus of old tech & new tech - dittos & screens, human hearts & digital speed.

Poets & Writers, Huffington Post, Poetry Foundation, Publishers Weekly, Coldfront, Academy of American Poets - these are just a few of the places that have reviewed our authors, lauded our efforts or singled out our team as expert architects in the future of what’s happening.
