Delivering the Summer Issue of Carpinteria Magazine

Day 7 / 30-Day Writing Challenge

I spent my Monday morning delivering the latest hot-off-the-press issue of Carpinteria Magazine. It's our thickest issue to date, and look, isn't she a beauty! 

Delivery girl is one of the hats I wear as Carpinteria Magazine editor. Magazine designer Kris Whittenton and I loaded up a big red wagon, walked down one side of Linden Avenue and back up the other delivering magazines. It was fun. We looked cute, too, pulling that wagon around. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to receive the magazine. 

Carpinteria Magazine can be found all over town, in parts of Santa Barbara, too. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it together. 

The print run for Carpinteria Magazine was 15,000. It took quite a few forklift loads to get all the pallets delivered. At 120 pages, it's heavy reading!
