*If a person loves doing this sort of thing and having the magazine cover the cost or even make a profit, however small, is not a priority then it could be a very beneficial undertaking.* I'm not condemning the idea, just the notion that publishing a magazine on a regular basis is a) a lot of work, b) is expensive, and c) takes a major effort in terms of time.
Unless the income from publishing the magazine makes a, b, and c worthwhile to a person, it's probably not something most people would want to take on.
We have a TF member who knows as much or more about the business of publishing a magazine than probably anyone on the forum, and that's Carey.* For several years now he and his wife and a couple of partners have been publishing an extremely well done monthy magazine highlighting all the events--- entertainment, cullinary, etc.--- coming up in the Bellingham-Mt. Vernon- Anacortes area.
If one wants to know the facts about what it takes--- and what the rewards are-- of publishing a magazine with a fairly specific readership, he's the one to ask.
