Southern Maryland This is Living, a magazine featuring the people, places and unique charm of Southern Maryland, is pleased to announce Michelle Brosco Christian, of Bel Alton, as the magazine's new editor.
The magazine, in publication since 1999, explores the many facets of the high quality of living in Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties and is the only such magazine in the region. Regular features include local history, gardening, dining out, historic, designer and renovated homes, as well as interesting people to know and unique places to go in Southern Maryland.
Writers and photographers of the quarterly magazine are all locally based; some are professionals, while others are amateurs with a love of writing and/or photography.
"It's my goal to bring more voices to the magazine, to present the highest-quality product each and every issue," said Christian, a professional writer who has lived in Charles County for over 20 years. "Whether you're new to the area, or you've lived here all your life, this magazine is something you shouldn't miss."
Southern Maryland This is Living Publisher Vickie Kite Milburn, who was raised in Charles County, and currently resides in St. Mary's, began the publication after a life-long desire to create a publication focusing on the unique flavor and outstanding people of the region. Milburn teamed with her former neighbor and graphic designer Barbara Dove Fink, who spent summers growing up in Southern Maryland and has lived in Calvert County for more than 10 years. Fink, the magazine's creative director, uses her talents to create a publication that is a beautiful representation of Southern Maryland.
