About The Village Voice

Founded in 1955 by a small group led by Norman Mailer, The Village Voice is the nation's first alternative newsweekly. The winner of three Pulitzers, it 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 a home to a wide range of writers and artists, including e.e. Cummings, Katherine Anne Porter, Ezra Pound and James Baldwin plus photographer Sylvia Plachy, cartoonist Lynda Barry, investigative journalists Wayne Barrett and Tom Robbins, music writer Robert Christgau and film writer J. Hoberman among many others.

In recent months, The Village Voice has rededicated itself to being an indispensable resource for progressive New Yorkers of all sorts. It has steadily increased distribution (120,000 and growing) and will continue to roll out upgrades and redesigns this year that foreshadow an extensive relaunch slated for unveil in 2017.
