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.

Our guests include Kristin Miale, president of Good Shepard Food Bank, musician Max Garcia Conover,…
