The Day – Presentation of The Day magazine
Happy New Year and welcome to The Day Publishing, 2022 edition.
Our business has been around for over a century – 141 years to those who matter – but we strive to keep our content up-to-date and relevant.
We are delighted to present our new product, The Day Magazine. Subscribers to the print edition of The Day received a copy of this brilliant beauty in their Sunday January 2 newspaper, and digital readers can access it at theday.com, where we provide a free preview.
The Day Magazine, which we have nicknamed TDM, will appear on the first Sunday of each month and replace our more specialized magazines with a publication that has something for everyone. Editor-in-chief Shannon Cushing said the goal was to “publish a magazine that caters to everyone in The Day community.”
The January edition hits the mark. Masterfully assembled by graphic designer Barb Dunn, it’s packed with loads of crisp, bright photos and plenty of writers’ stories you’ll recognize from the pages of The Day, as well as new contributors.
You’re probably going to say, “Who knew? When you read the story of the commercial seaweed industry in Ann Baldelli’s cover story on Suzie Flores and Jay Douglas of the Stonington Kelp Company. You’ll probably say it again when you meet New London’s mother-daughter therapy team Gizelle Tircuit and Janelle Posey-Green and learn about their holistic mental health company, Magnolia Wellness LLC, in an article by Traci Neal. And again when you read Jennifer Carmichael’s article on Merrily and Michael Connery and the story of their Saltwater Farm vineyard in Stonington.
Daytime worker Johana Vazquez presented Tony’s Caribbean Kitchen in New London. Employee Erica Moser scored an interview with US Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. Phil Hall wrote about National Soup Month (again, who knew?). Neal has written about worker burnout and the people it affects the most. Writer Gretchen Peck took the pulse of the housing market in Southeast Connecticut for one article and wrote about the seasonal changes taking place at local garden centers for another. In the “Cycles of Life” section, Bridget Shirvell spoke with pediatricians and child psychologists about keeping children healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. (Hint: take them outside!)
You’ll be able to improve your take-out delivery game after reading Tyler Duboys’ article, get ready for a day trip to the Connecticut Science Center in an article by Carmichael, and soak up “Vitamin Sea” in an article. on cruises in small ships. by Catlin M. Bagley.
When you’re done, you can curl up against one of author Betty J. Cotter’s book recommendations under a heading called “Turning Pages.”
