About Portland Monthly Magazine
Since 1985, Portland Monthly Magazine has been proud to offer an Extraordinary Perspective that's made it a favorite for readers and lovers of Maine. Portland Monthly Magazine fearlessly refuses to offer undifferentiated "content." Our prizewinning stories are singular for having real substance. We celebrate the region's native appeal with revealing stories on fascinating personalities, unbiased reviews, cuisine news in our acclaimed "Hungry Eye" pages, and our striking signature interviews. Never monetized, never compromised, our stories dare to be different. They dare to provoke. Each issue captures our audience with fresh fiction, event listings, and exclusive angles on curious incidents that impact everyday life. From realistic assessments of the local economy and its political vagaries to stories on personalities who have chosen our area over all others, to Maine's own variations of the work ethic, to light-hearted glimpses of Yankee contradictions, we consistently present fresh narratives about the greatest place in the world to visit, to do business in, and to live.
