Dear Reader of Verily Magazine,
I’m writing with news of big changes here at Verily, some of which are hard to write, and others that are very exciting.
We started Verily with the simple idea that women’s magazines could be a positive, uplifting experience. And publishing Verily has largely been just that. The editors and I have been thrilled with the tremendous reception of Verily, from coverage on the Huffington Post & The Queen Latifah Show to your heartfelt notes of gratitude. It has been a joy to publish each issue.
As you might suspect, a print publication is also an expensive undertaking that requires significant financial resources to become profitable. While we have had tremendous growth in our subscriptions, we were unable to secure the necessary funding to support the publication of future print issues. Therefore, it is with sadness that we must announce that we cannot currently continue to publish Verily as a print magazine.
While this means we must take a break from the print publication for now, we are excited to continue bringing you our unique and quality content at verilymag.com. We at Verily will continue to do what we set out to do—be a resource for women to celebrate the best of who they are. All the fashion, relationships, culture, and lifestyle content you’ve come to love will now all be online—and in greater abundance—just a few clicks away. We’ll also be working on other ways to grow the Verily experience, so stay tuned for what’s in store!
Since no new print issues will be created in 2014, subscribers to the print magazine will receive a refund check for the remainder of their subscription.
Practically speaking, it will take us a few weeks to process all the checks, so we appreciate your patience in advance.
Thank you so much for your support over the last year. We know that our success to date is the result of the hundreds of creative collaborators and all the fantastic women (and men!) who have purchased subscriptions. We look forward to continuing to bring you great content that’s “less of who you should be, more of who you are.”
UPDATE: Several people have asked to have us keep their subscription funds. We are incredibly touched by your generosity and support. To make this as easy as possible for everyone, if you would like to decline your refund please fill out this form and we will withhold your refund. Many thanks!
