Readers, Advertisers, Subscribers & Festival Friends
Thank you, thank you for your support these past six years…or so. As you may have noticed, you haven’t seen any new issues of the Regional Renaissance Reporter for awhile. Due to twice almost having the publication sold to individuals in the past 15 months we kept postponing the run of the latest issue.
Finally, after a visit to our fine friends at Renaissance Magazine we were able to work out an arrangement by which we are merging our magazine into theirs. So, as of this January there will be no new RRR printed products. Our subscribers and, of course, you great advertisers will be able to experience Renaissance Magazine from now on. As a matter of fact, most of our subscribers will now start getting a few issues of Ren magazine to complete your subscription orders; and then you’ll be encouraged to continue subscribing to Renaissance Magazine.
As far as the www.renreporter.com website goes, we are going to keep it active as a hub for national event news, calendar info, vendor advertising, messaging, etc. AND we plan to create an inter-active blog post here at the website. So stay tuned and don’t be shy about posting news, here, or even doing some of your advertising on our website — the most beloved in North America — because lots of people will be seeing what you have to offer.
Now, we still have a few dozen complete sets of the entire Regional Renaissance Reporter run available for collectors. So, if you can spare $10 we’ll send you all 14 issues. Just contact me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Here’s hoping we see you at faire, this year and beyond. And don’t forget that we run festivals ourselves. See our event list at www.festint.com. Don’t be shy about stopping Allen or me at a live event and sharing a moment of fond memories. Perhaps, this website will feel just as familial as the magazine had become.
