About The Village Voice:
Founded in 1955 by a small group that included Norman Mailer, The Village Voice was the nation's first alternative newsweekly. The winner of three Pulitzers, the paper built a reputation for itself as an aggressive interrogator of the powers that be as well as a reliable resource for finding and promoting cutting-edge arts and culture. Over the years it has been home to a wide range of writers and artists, including literary luminaries e.e. cummings, Katherine Anne Porter, Ezra Pound, and James Baldwin, photographer Sylvia Plachy, cartoonist Lynda Barry, investigative journalists Wayne Barrett and Tom Robbins, "Dean of American Rock Critics" Robert Christgau, and film authority J. Hoberman, among many others.

Over the past seven months, the Voice has rededicated itself to being an indispensable resource for progressive New Yorkers of all sorts. It has steadily increased distribution (110,000 and growing) and recently upgraded its paper stock from 27.7# newsprint to 35# bright white. The newsweekly will continue to roll out upgrades and redesigns this year in advance of an extensive relaunch slated for unveiling in 2017.
