Welcome to Mia!

Summer days are great for daydreaming. We're doing a little of that here at Mia. Our premiere issue is out on Friday, and we've already begun working on the Fall issue, which will be out in September. We've also launched our website, which, if you're reading this means you've found it. Congratulations! But we're letting our dreams take us even beyond the next issue and what you see on the website. We are excited to begin building a Mia community of women who share their stories with one another. We want to bring you even further into our community, so we're looking at ways to archive stories on our website. We're only able to print a limited number of stories in our magazine, so we're dreaming about ways to hear the voices of women everywhere.

We're also daydreaming about how to spread the word about Mia through women who believe in the importance of storytelling. Women are always excited to share with other women about something they believe in. We want our magazine to be distributed in two ways: the traditional rack at coffee shops, salons, restaurants, boutiques. But we also want to distribute from the hand of one women into the hand of another woman. There is no better endorsement. So we're dreaming about how to get magazines into the hands of women who will pass them on.

And finally, we're daydreaming about YOU. We want to make sure we connect with you in some way: through our print magazine, our website, our Facebook or Twitter page. We wonder about your opinions, your suggestions, your thoughts. We want to know your story. Please consider this your invitation to become part of the Mia community in whatever way you can. We'd love to hear from you. You can find us on Facebook or Twitter. You can comment on our blog. You can email us at

We'll have a list of locations where you can find our magazine on this blog, and on our Facebook page. Look for us. We'll be looking for you! Enjoy these summer days, and find some time for doing some of your own daydreaming. Welcome to Mia, the magazine by, for, and about women. It's your magazine.
