It’s not just because I was about to publish two articles in my favorite parenting magazine that I’m mourning Wondertime magazine’s passing.
It’s that Wondertime is, was, such an original, top-notch magazine: A zippy publication for parents with honest, funny, smart writing that could be at once touching and snarky, with writers like the heart-achingly talented Catherine Newman. The woman can write poetry about tamale pie.
Now I read, too, that Conde Nast is shuttering Domino magazine, my monthly home decor Bible.
How will I raise my children? How will I decorate my home? What’s a freelance writer to do when the best magazines are shutting down?
Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
