This is intended to be a statement - the confident answer to the question, “Where are you from?” or “Where do you live?” Marietta.
Hi! I love harvest time, don’t you? We’ve been working all summer to get this premier issue to press, and we are so excited to get to share it with everyone! My name is Nicole Shea, and I live in this wonderful city of Marietta, also once referred to as “The Gem City,” with my husband and two kids. I am new to the magazine business, but have a heart for getting to know the stories behind the fabulousness of this town.
Who are we? What is our vision for this new publication? We are a group of local writers, graphic designers, photographers, foodies and Marietta-lovers who are on a mission to help small communities thrive. To stay true to our name, we have a few rules - boundaries:
1. We will only write about Marietta people, places and things. If it doesn’t have a Marietta address, it won’t really fit our mission of being a local lifestyle magazine just for Marietta.
2. We aren’t concerned with incorporated or unincorporated boundary lines or outdated ways of differentiating between north, south, east, and west Cobb - if you have a Marietta address then we think you’ll connect with our magazine.
3. We’re not a newspaper, and we won’t try to be because we wouldn’t be very good at it. We will focus on sharing the greatest local stories about festivals, philanthropy, local entrepreneurs, the arts and theatre, our history, new developments and everybody’s favorite: food and drink.
Our promise to you...to be interesting, creative and optimistic. We hope you enjoy reading all about Marietta and what makes it such a GEM!
The November/December issue will be packed with our local holiday favorites, so be sure to subscribe TODAY!
