ABOUT VP / (Contributors)

What's a girl to do when she leaves her editing gig in the offices of the best damned newspaper in the world, the one that publishes all the news that's fit to print – with a few exceptions, of course? She takes a few months off, then returns to her roots: reporting ...

The Manhattan-based scribe/seasoned journalist, VEVLYN WRIGHT – and her contributors – employs wit, irreverence, compassion and insight to comment on goings-on in the realm of art&culture / fashion&beauty / food&drink / movies&music / theater&TV …

Think of VEVLYN’S PEN as a boutique whereas, say, The New York Times is a department store. VP carries select stock. In an overcrowded marketplace populated by too many unreliable and/or poor quality portals, this newszine is the source of carefully curated coverage of events in the aforementioned areas.

VP content is as informative, entertaining, inspiring and engaging as you will find in the best newspapers, magazines and other media outlets. And like that black turtleneck with both horizontal and vertical ribbing carried by your favorite boutique, VP content has interesting twists that you and others will appreciate but will not read/find everywhere else.

Just as important, VP content is trustworthy and reliable.
