SHE is a new biannual magazine full of inspirational stories that illustrate the way donations to the Canadian Women’s Foundation have helped women and girls in Canada move out of poverty and violence.
It features personal success stories and practical how-to articles.
Editor Diane Hill said in a Masthead article, “We want the magazine to include clear actions people can take … We want them to support us and engage with us, but we also want to connect people to ways they can take action in their daily life.”
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies on the support of volunteers and donors to produce She Magazine. The Foundation printed a limited number of magazines to send to its donors, but it’s essentially a free digital magazine. Hill can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DARE is an online Canadian magazine that provides fashion-forward women with the latest trends, inspiring interviews and style advice.
Dare has a tentative quarterly publication schedule and its editorial covers news, trends, fashion and beauty. The magazine is targeted at fashion-forward women who have a strong passion for style and an eagerness to try new trends, who also happen to wear a size 12 and up. Although the current fashion climate requires a “plus size” label for anything other than runway svelte, in a Calgary Herald article, Editor Diana Di Poce said, “I wanted to keep it more general in the way that any woman can look at the magazine and get inspiration from it.” You can view the first edition online.
Di Poce can be reached at Diana.Daremag@gmail.com.

The mom-focused publication will amplify Walmart’s brand promise “Save money, live better” with Rogers-created content spanning four key pillars: Food, home, health, and beauty and fashion.

The content team will be led by Rogers Media’s newly appointed Editor-in-Chief, Sandra Martin. The print edition will be published six times a year starting in April 2013.

HOLO is the name of a technology magazine that has made the jump from screen to print.
It aims to explore the convergence of art, science and technology and will contain bite-sized stories but will also offer long-form journalism, taking readers into the studios of those behind design and technology, Greg J. Smith, a Toronto-based designer, educator and editor-in-chief said. Alexander Scholz, the magazine’s creative director also based in Toronto, said “the goal is to tell stories not possible in a blog. People reading the web don’t have the patience, that’s the natural way of consuming information on the web.”
The biannual magazine will employ freelancers and the content will have an international style. It will be distributed in major cities around the world, with an initial print run of around 3,000 that could grow with more financial support. The cover price should be $20 to $30, while subscriptions will be available.
