Readers of the mediabistro.com LA forum were wondering about the fate of West magazine. Lennie LaGuire, who’s been consulting editor, is looking for a whole new staff, to replace those who left a while back. From the memo:
The magazine has openings for editors. With the publication now a monthly, we have expanded each issue significantly and launched a number of new columns on the art and craft of living in Southern California along with regular features on home, fashion, food and travel. The next step is the introduction of a signature monthly profile. Overall, our goal is to make the magazine a journal of sophisticated localism, devoted to reporting on the people, places, objects and ideas that readers need to know about to make the most out of living here. We’re looking for editors who share our passion for chronicling a vibrant and fast-changing region, and who place a premium on visual storytelling and fine writing.
(FBLA wonders if West will differ significantly from Los Angeles, Angeleno, etc.? Does it matter? )
