Donna Talarico is the founder/publisher and managing editor of Hippocampus Magazine and its annual conference, HippoCamp. She has nearly two decades of experience in marketing, communications, writing and media, and about half of that time has been in higher education. She earned an MFA in creative writing from Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and, because learning never ends, in 2015 she returned to Wilkes to pursue a master's degree in literary publishing. She also has an MBA from Elizabethtown College and a bachelor's degree in communication studies from Wilkes. Donna lives in downtown Lancaster, Pa. with her husband, Kevin Beerman and their cat. She loves road trips, national parks, board games, greasy-spoon diner breakfasts and museums.
The Triangle works to foster a diverse, innovative literary culture in south central Pennsylvania, making it a place where writers, poets, artists, and literature enthusiasts can thrive together in a supportive and engaging community.
