Midwest Agriculture Almanac, or MAA as I call it, is a quarterly publication focused on agriculture in the Midwest. The paper is designed for farmers and others who work in the agriculture industry. As publisher and editor, I write stories, edit copy from freelancers, design the entire publication, and handle advertising and subscription issues (that’s definitely a new adventure!) Wondering how I got started with MAA? Check out my story here.
In addition to the paper version of MAA, I also regularly update the website and handle all social media for the publication. As a quarterly publication, I think it’s important to stay connected with readers in between issues via social media and stories are added to the site regularly. MAA allows me to use all my skills — writing, editing, layout. social media, website design and writing for the web. It’s really a fun project and something I never would have imagined doing a couple of years ago.
