Jonny Diamond Resigns as Editor of L Magazine

Jonny Diamond has decided 10 years is enough. He is resigning as editor-in-chief of The L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine. He announced late last night on Twitter that he was moving on because, “The world needed another unemployed writer of short stories with pretentious titles.”

Diamond had been the editor of the L Magazine since it launched in 2003. He told The New York Observer that he wanted to pursue fiction and freelance writing and “The very first thing I’ll be doing is not stressing about pageviews.”

Mike Conklin is succeeding Diamond as editor.

The L Magazine Launches New Quarterly Publication

The team behind The L Magazine has launched a new quarterly title, called Brooklyn Magazine. The New York Observer says that Brooklyn Magazine is staffed by writers for the L Magazine and several freelancers. Topics covered in the first issue include an interview with cover guy Michael Pitt and Ditmas Park’s design.

Johnny Diamond, Editor of both the L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine tells the Observer that he thinks the cred the L has carries over to the new title. “We’re not just coming in late to the scene and exploiting the ‘international brand of Brooklyn’—an expression I find dodgy, at best.”

It’s hard, but FishbowlNY is going to withhold judgement. However, if the next cover is as annoying as this one (although, fans of The Cure must be ecstatic) we might have to lash out.
