Many students said they share Hara’s gratitude for V Magazine and the artistic community that it represents.
“I’ve talked to several people who have told Christina and I that when they saw V Magazine, it was really heartening to them or really rewarding because they felt like there was a visible community,” Hirschler said. “We get so much interest, and so many people want to join.”
The magazine’s most recent issue blends rich stories and poems with powerful visuals to create a unique experience.
“The design work teases out really good elements from the articles,” Hirschler said. “It ends up being this really great process by which everyone is sort of helping tell the story that the person had pitched to us.”
Stories and projects within the magazine are accepted on a submission basis, which expands creativity, the co-editor’s said.
