Maura Magazine

By 29th Street Publishing

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Maura is a new weekly magazine. Each week, it takes on pop culture with brio; its offerings include in-depth interviews with creators and innovators, incisive commentary on music, movies, sports, and the internet, and indulgent recipes for liquor-filled treats. Maura takes a populist approach to pop culture: It is fun to read without making fun of fans for loving what they love. Maura is open-minded without being empty-headed.

Maura Johnston’s readers have followed her from Idolator and the Village Voice to The New York Times, Spin, Rolling Stone, and NPR. Many of them know her by her first name. Subscribe today and get to know Maura.

Maura is published every week on Thursday. The app is a free download that includes one issue and a weeklong free trial. After that, auto-renewing subscriptions are $2.99 for a month or $29.99 for a year. Your subscription revenues directly support the writing, editing, and production of Maura Magazine.

What are people saying?

"For me the appeal of these apps is something like the appeal of zines. Of course, these are solidly digital, but something about them still feels tangible, slightly more handmade, like a human carefully, lovingly, put them together." — Jenna Wortham, The New York Times

"This emphasis on fewer but more substantial stories is Johnston’s way of trying to bring digital journalism back to its early days, which she remembers as a time when readers could 'burrow down' to find 'enclaves of stories' un- or undercovered in mainstream media." — Sara Morrison, Columbia Journalism Review

"29th Street Publishing continues to show everyone how magazines on the iPhone/iPad should be done with the release of a new title, the weekly Maura Magazine. " — Jean Snow, The Magaziner

This is the only magazine I read with any regularity, and its culture writing is of such high quality, I can't imagine reading any others. Its newest version is so much easier to navigate, and it looks delicious on my iPad. Long may Maura and MAURA reign.
