A hyper-local lifestyle publication for the city of Newark had my byline throughout its winter issue, but this particular article for the last Destination Newark of 2017 had a unique journey. It was originally intended to run in the fall issue of the seasonal publication, but a hot news story became a higher priority and my piece was sadly bumped. C’est la vie du magazines!
But it all worked out in the end with a little retooling of the intro, my article on the Community Storefront Program and its goal of increasing small business ownership outside of the downtown Newark area made its way into the next issue in time for the holiday and new year shopping season.
