Island magazine cuts back

Thumb_SJST_1_mar12

The St. John Sun Times is reducing its publishing schedule to every other month.  

The publisher of the island's best source for the word on about what's new, island deals, or where the music and best food are says the change is not seasonal. 

"It's a business decision I should have made long ago," said Ella Anderson, owner. "But I love publishing and editing so much I delayed."

It's been five years since she took on the Sun Times. "Five years of beautiful covers, zany photo shoots, editing marathons and sweaty all nighters," she wrote in the March/April issue.  Any business owner knows what she's talking about. The pressure is always on.

Anderson has developed a loyal cadre of locals who write/edit/photograph/report.  Sometimes their collective purpose seems to be to build community spirit and unity rather than to make a profit.

The St. John Sun Times is a must have/must read for every resident and visitor.

"I know our locals will miss the extra issues.  We don't get much to read that's free around here!," Anderson added.

Until the May/June issue, Anderson says look to the Sun Times' Web site or Facebook pages for news of the island.

  1. The gov’t or even private sector should subsidize outfits like this; they add to the appeal of island life and culture. There is virtually no financial reward for owners of papers- it is a labour of love.
