A new, quarterly publication, Cape Cod & The Islands, will make its debut in the spring of 2020. The publication will offer a fresh perspective about life on the Cape and islands and will be a thoughtfully curated collection of stories about history, events, literature, and, of course, the people who call Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket home.
After Lighthouse Media Solutions—the former publisher of Cape Cod Magazine—unexpectedly closed a year ago, the creative team came up with a way to regenerate a new publication for readers and advertisers and for local writers and photographers to showcase their work. Kelly Chase will serve as editor-in-chief, Rebecca Banas as advertising manager, Eric Brust-Akdemir as art director, and Fatih Akdemir as managing publisher. The Cape Cod & The Islands team is passionate about telling stories that matter and driven by a desire to make lasting connections throughout the coastal community.
“Good stories are powerful—they can connect us, change us, and inspire us,” says Chase. “That’s why regional publications are still so important and so valuable because they hold stories about neighbors and local businesses. Our team here at Cape Cod and the Islands is passionate about our mission, and we hope our readers and advertisers enjoy what we’ve created.”
The spring issue is planned for a late March release date. Followed by Summer, Fall and Holiday issues of Cape Cod & The Islands. For editorial inquiries, email [email protected]; for advertising inquiries, email [email protected]
