GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A columnist here in the Grand Valley is looking to promote Western Colorado lifestyle through her new magazine.
Robin Brown, owner of local public relations company Brown House PR, will be coming out with Spoke and Blossom, a quarterly magazine.
Spoke and Blossom will focus on outdoor recreation, food and drink, agriculture, fishing and hunting, politics, as well as arts and culture found in the Grand Valley.
"So many outsiders are telling the stories of Western Colorado. It's time we took control of our own narrative, put our best face forward, help bring people here, show them where to go and what to do. Also, just to tell the stories to our own people of all the good things going on here,' said Brown.
Brown says she hopes to fight the "junk town" mentality with the "west slope, best slope" mentality.
The quarterly magazine will be available online as well as in a print edition, with the first issue launching on October 1, 2017.
