While many literary magazines have themes, Capitol Hill’s HOARSE takes theirs to another level. “Field Day” was held in Miller park with play parachutes, otter pops, red rover, Capri Sun, and sack races. For “Pool Party” there were inflatable pools, sand, sunglasses and beach wear and the release of issue six “Undercover” promises to be the best yet.
