Thanks for the memories, PDX!

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end of PDX Magazine. Since October of 2005, we've had the pleasure of writing about one of the greatest cities in the world; and we consider it a privilege to have shared some of our favorite elements of it with you.

Our operation has always been quite small (usually a core group of 4-5 people assembling content/writing/editing/designing), and of late that has been to our benefit. When things got tough, we got creative. We buckled down. We worked harder and longer and we made sacrifices wherever we could. Sadly, the challenges of creating a high-quality print publication every month outweigh the practicalities of sustaining it any longer.

Thank you for your readership and support throughout these past years. It has been a rough-and-tumble, but glorious ride.

You know I'm mourning right along with you and the team, Holly! We all worked so hard to create an awesome magazine for the past nearly four years (wow!). Should we perhaps have a staff - former and more newly-former - wake?

Very sorry to hear this, Hollyanna. But you certainly get to go out with your heads held high. PDX Magazine has been a wonderful publication; I read every issue cover to cover, and felt it really filled a gap in cultural coverage especially. THANK YOU for doing a fantastic job; I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Hollyanna and PDX Magazine,
I'm so very, very sorry to read this. I thoroughly enjoyed the magazine, the voice and content you covered. What a loss for PDX!
Wishing you well...

Sorry to hear this. PDX Magazine was a great pub during its run - one I enjoyed both as a writer for and a reader of.

sorry to hear that PDX Mag is folding. Even though I'm in Salem, I read it when I could. But it's a tough market and hard to survive. I wish all of you well...
