Please note: The IRMA Facebook page is a members-only, closed group for sharing questions and ideas, open to the staff of active members and sponsor members.

IRMA invites everyone to participate in our open forum on Linked-In.

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.” 

IRMA exists to promote and support regional publishing generally and to encourage the free flow of information among member magazines.  We encourage other regional publishers to join and we welcome publishing industry suppliers as sponsors.  Questions?
