Southern New England WOMAN Magazine to Re-launch in Fall 2013

WARWICK, RI – Southern New England WOMAN Magazine, a quarterly publication that addresses important issues aimed at helping today’s woman lead a balanced lifestyle, will re-launch in the Fall of 2013 as a joint collaboration between founding publisher Pat Paolino Cruz and the Rhode Island Small Business Journal.

Southern New England WOMAN Magazine will feature 92 full color glossy pages celebrating one of the most beautiful and charming regions of the United States, and the women who live and work here. It will be available complimentary at locations across the region. Cruz will serve as publisher and editor-in-chief, while RISBJ will serve as the creative design team and be responsible for marketing and distribution of the magazine.

“My original vision for Southern New England WOMAN Magazine remains the guiding light for the re-launch: we will explore the issues that face women in the 21st Century, in a thought provoking and contemporary way,” said Pat Paolino Cruz. “As women with careers, families, relationships and more to balance day-in and day-out we can all use advice, learn about resources and products and share our own stories to help other women live their best lives. It’s my hope Southern New England WOMAN Magazine will help women to generate a renewed sense of self and great enthusiasm for their own life experiences.”

Many of the articles will feature top local, regional and national experts discussing issues such as the balance between career and family, relationships, finances, home, time management and much more.  Southern New England WOMAN Magazine will also highlight resources, products and services that can be found across the region.

“Southern New England WOMAN Magazine is a win-win for female consumers, female business professionals and any business that considers women potential clients or customers,” said Gil Lantini, Founder & President of the Rhode Island Small Business Journal. “We are thrilled to partner with Pat Cruz to re-launch this magazine which will serve an important segment in our region. We believe with our experience in brand management and publishing combined with Pat’s expertise with women’s related issues that we’ve created a combination that is poised for success.”
