Atlanta Magazine

Atlanta Magazine Atlanta magazine is the city’s premier general interest publication, reaching a monthly audience of more than 400,000 readers. Since 1961, Atlanta magazine has served as the authority on the metro Atlanta area.

Atlanta magazine is the city's premier general interest publication. Since 1961, Atlanta magazine has served as the authority on Atlanta, providing its readers with a mix of long-form nonfiction, lively lifestyle coverage, in-depth service journalism, and literary essays, columns, and profiles. The city's only general-interest magazine, Atlanta is recognized regionally and nationally for journalism and design excellence, with more than 300 regional and national awards. The magazine was founded in 1961 by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, but from its inception it was much more than a promotion piece for its namesake city. Founding editor Jim Townsend, described by Time as "the father of city magazines," set the standard from day one with cutting-edge design, powerful graphics, and investigative and creative articles by some of the emerging talents of the 1960s. The magazine's pages carried work by Anne Rivers Siddons, Bill Diehl, and others who would go on to be hugely successful novelists, under the art direction of Bob Daniels, who later left to serve as art director of Esquire. Over the decades, the legacy of excellence has continued, with noted magazine writers such as Tom Junod, Luke Dittrich, Justin Heckert, and Paige Williams on staff, and contributors ranging from novelists such as Pat Conroy and Terry Kay to noted nonfiction authors such as Melissa Fay Greene and Steve Oney. The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce sold the magazine in the 1970s. After a series of ownership changes during which the content and design continued to evolve, Emmis Publishing bought the magazine in 1993. Emmis also owns Texas Monthly, Indianapolis Monthly, Cincinnati magazine, Orange Coast, and Los Angeles magazine. Emmis Publishing is a division of Emmis Communications (NASDQ: EMMS), an Indianapolis-based diversified media firm.

Mission: To engage our community through provocative writing, authoritative reporting, and superlative design that illuminate the people, trends, and events that define our city.

APS Superintendent Meria Carstarphen: “It’s sobering how your decision can change the direction of people’s lives.”

I said to our team, “We need to prepare for the day when we have to shut down the district.” There were moments where I felt was pushing a wet noodle up a mountain. As things started escalating, we had to make decisions about staff travel, about kids and teams that had to go out of the state for sports. Should we be cancelling exchange programs? People were like, “You’re not really considering that?” I said, “We have to prepare a contingency plan that starts with the worst-case scenario.”

The Day King Died - Atlanta Magazine

On this day 52 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. In this article from our April 1993 issue, former Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. describes how Atlanta stayed together while the rest of America split apart:

On the night of Thursday, April 4, 1968, Louise and I were in our bedroom at home watching television and reading the newspaper when a bulletin flashed on the screen: MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., SHOT IN MEMPHIS.

21st Century Plague: 17 Georgians on what coronavirus has done—and what it still can do

Each day feels like a month.

Part of the beauty of Supremo Taco is how seamlessly it channels both Southern California and Mexico City from that Memorial Drive parking lot—and how it manages to satisfy a different kind of hunger.

When I got back home to Atlanta, I wanted to eat something that would take me back to Mexico City. Then, I remembered all the good things I’d heard about Supremo, the new taco joint on Memorial Drive in Grant Park. From the first bite of my carne asada taco, I was transported.

"To relieve my anxiety about the current situation, I weed my garden compulsively. I also have a new routine involving slow, lonely drives through the neighborhoods I love.

Do I have COVID-19? Maybe. But like many Georgians, I’ve found it impossible to get a test.

“You could have COVID-19,” the doctor said. “Probably.” But he explained because there are so few tests available in Georgia, hospitals are only allowed to administer them to patients who need to be admitted.

The doctor said the restrictions on testing are frustrating. “I want to test to see how bad it is in the community,” he said. “I want to test the medical staff here.” But he can’t, because there aren’t enough tests to go around.

I need a test. My husband needs a test. Thousands of Georgians need tests. And we’re not getting them.
