Coastlands moves to a print and web model

Coastlands: The Maritimes Policy Review is relaunching in July as a beefed-up twice-yearly publication, augmented by a frequently updated website. Editor Rachel Brighton, who launched the Nova Scotia Policy Review in 2007 (later expanding its reach to all three Maritime provinces, with the new name) says that frequency change reflects changes in her life. Notably, she now writes a weekly column for the business pages of the Chronicle-Herald newspaper and is working on her Masters degree in theology at Acadia University in Wolfville.
Brighton said the print publication may have more pages and be more focussed on longer articles about public policy, social, cultural and economic issues, while the new website -- being launched at the same time in July -- will have more timely, shorter content. She also said she hopes to keep each issue of the magazine on newsstands for longer periods and expand distribution to make it available in other, less traditional outlets. 
The magazine's two-year sub price will be reduced to $40 ($46 with the impact of the 15% HST that is coming in at the end of June) and single copies will be $10 each.
