This chapter considers a range of ‘Village Voices’ that attempted to keep alive the spirit of artistic revolt in the magazines of the 1910s into the period of the 1920s. These include The Greenwich Villager, which was more a newspaper than a magazine, and reported more upon the activities of Village personalities for tourists than it acted as a forum for the publication of new voices; Open Vistas, which was devoted to philosophical anarchism; and Vachel Lindsay's The Village Magazine, which expressed the temperamental individualism of its editor and is perhaps best understood as a form of ‘outsider art’.

Keywords:   American magazine, modernist magazine, periodical, Greenwich Village, newspaper, philosophical anarchism, Vachel Lindsay
