A Celebration of Original Local!
Our always original cover and feature art is graced by Northern Arizona’s finest painters, sculptors, and photographers; many of whom have achieved national recognition.
Our columns, profiles, short stories, poems, and news features are created by the state’s “best-read part-time wordsmiths;” citizens who live and breathe Arizona, often in many varied capacities.

Your Market is ARIZONA!
Since 2001, we are Arizona’s variety monthly, chock-full of quality writing and stunning visual reproduction, a strategy aimed at engaging visitors and citizens from many walks of life.
Our audience is: sharp, young at heart, more likely to hold college degrees, attend art shows, theatre, live music concerts and festivals; be involved in the community, tool around in the garden, go for a hike, and look to the future. As tourists and locals, they like to have a good time in our state’s most sought-after territory, dining out and enjoying good conversation over coffee, a smoothie, or glass of beer or wine.
Readership & Circulation
We distribute to 250 high-traffic locations throughout Arizona, with a total per- edition monthly readership of over 50,000. We’ve developed our distribution points in 15 cities & towns — Flagstaff, Winslow, Williams, Sedona, Village of Oak Creek, Cornville, Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Jerome, Prescott, Prescott Valley, Camp Verde, Payson, Pine & Strawberry — serving a combined regional population of 190,000 Arizonans with over 11 million domestic and foreign tourists visiting annually.
People pick us up free of charge in the state’s most popular cafes and restaurants, wineries and breweries, grocery and retail stores, hotels, lodges, and resorts, college campuses, galleries, museums and visitors’ centers. Readers bring us home, saving editions for reference and monthly reminder.
Surveys indicate a 5-person per-edition pass-around rate, and the magazine is so popular, distributors often hold reservations for copies. And our shelf-life and printing precision is so conscientious to demand, we are considered a zero-waste periodical.
