Established in 1985 by Colin and Nancy Sargent, Portland Magazine
fearlessly refuses to offer undifferentiated “content.” Our prizewinning
stories are singular for having real substance. We celebrate the
region’s native appeal with revealing, highly detailed stories on
fascinating personalties; unbiased reviews; cuisine news in our
acclaimed Hungry Eye pages; and our signature interviews that are
strikingly not puff pieces. Not monetized, not compromised, and created
for our readers over everything else, our stories dare to be different
and dare to provoke. You deserve nothing less.
Each issue captures our audience with fresh fiction (sometimes very
fresh), great listings, and exclusive angles on curious incidents that
affect everyday life. From realistic assessments of the local economy
and its political vagaries to stories on personalities who have chosen
our area over all others, to Maine’s own variations of the work ethic,
to light-hearted glimpses of Yankee contradictions, we consistently
present fresh narratives about the greatest place in the world to visit,
to do business in, and to live.
More than just a city-lifestyle magazine, Portland Magazine offers an
extraordinary perspective that has made it a favorite for readers and
lovers of Maine.
