It has been said that publishing is dead, but we at the Maine Media Collective know that publishing is merely transitioning, and that we have the opportunity to make a good thing even better. As wellness editor, it has been my privilege to share the good news about health with Maine magazine readers since January. In June, we launched Old Port magazine, which focuses on the goings-on around the Portland peninsula. Today we speak with Jen DeRose, editor of Old Port, and Kevin Thomas, publisher of Old Port, Maine and Maine Home + Design magazines, for a behind-the-scenes look at this exciting addition. We also speak with Zack Anchors and Erin Quigley of Portland Paddle, who are featured in the September issue of Old Port.
