I’m sorry to say that I’ve just heard that Focus has shut down operations of its youth programs, including BRIO magazine. This makes me sad, because I cut my teeth writing for Brio and other magazines. In fact, I first met my dear friend Nancy Rue at a “Brio Brainstorming Blowout” held in Susie’s house. 🙂 That was so many years ago, I’m not even going to count.
BUT–as sad as that news is, the good news is that Susie has started a new magazine called, aptly enough, “SUSIE!” You can see what it’s all about on the webpage right here. So if you have a teenage or preteen daughter, sign her up for a subscription right away. It’s a wonderful alternative to the other magazines out there . . . have you skimmed any of them lately?
Last night I read the June issue from cover to cover. It’s wonderful.
Congratulations, Susie! May your new work prosper!
