Criticas Magazine To Close

criticasLogoSansTagline.gifAlong with yesterday’s news about layoffs at Publishers Weekly, the trade publication’s parent company has made another cut–shuttering the eight-year-old magazine, Criticas.

The bi-monthly magazine focused on the Spanish-language publishing industry, explaining trends and introducing authors to readers who did not read Spanish. Chad Post published a letter that Criticas editor Aida Bardales sent to her colleagues:

“The publisher stated that ad support has greatly diminished, and given the current economic downtown, there was no sufficient foundation on which to continue with the publication of Criticas. Still, they remain optimistic, adding that they hope to somehow continue coverage of the U.S. Spanish-language book market through sister publications Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal.”
