What is a regional magazine?
D. W. Kuhnert, Editor in Chief Emeritus of Down East magazine, put it this way: “A regional magazine is a general-interest magazine that aims to define, interpret, and explore a specific, recognizable region for those living there or yearning to. It should not be confused with a travel magazine, a shelter magazine, a photography magazine, an art magazine, a history magazine, or a gardening magazine. It is all these and more, and at its best is the authoritative voice for the particular area upon which it’s focused.”
