Mount Hope believes a diversity of voices and experiences is at the core of significant and positive change in our culture. We are committed to fostering a welcoming environment for all writers and readers, regardless of gender identity, age, race and ethnicity, physical ability, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation. We welcome all into our community to better connect, embrace, and learn from one another. Creative work from different paths of life allows this magazine to aspire to an accurate retelling of the human experience, and to highlight those differences in a humanistic way. We are proud to stand with all communities and strive to support those who have been oppressed and mistreated.
