Beginning with this current edition, the Reader’s print publishing schedule will go from every other week (26 editions annually) to 12 monthly printed editions per year. When we started publishing in 1993, we were monthly for 23 issues. We then published weekly for 13 years before going bi-weekly in 2009. The Quad Cities’ Dining Guide will continue to be published twice per year as a printed supplement.
More details, along with some history on the Reader and the ways it has transformed in the past, can be found in this issue’s Words from the Publisher. Along with our new monthly schedule, we’re expanding the annual photo contest into monthly, themed photography and design awards. Check out the publishing calendar below for a list of those themes, and stay tuned on our website for participation details.
