Launched in 2008, WOMAN Media Group publishes three popular regional publications spanning Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Southern Maryland Woman, Fairfax Woman and Alexandria Woman magazines are bi-monthly, large format, free publications for women. Southern Maryland Woman magazine, the first of three, made its debut in July 2008 and has grown ever since, thanks to the support from advertisers and readers across the region. Since then, Fairfax Woman was launched in March 2009 and Alexandria Woman in March 2011.
Southern Maryland Woman, Fairfax Woman and Alexandria Woman magazines are primary resource publications, which have a readership of 2.46 per copy with an average life span of 45+ days, according to the National Press Association. This above average readership or pass along rate is a result of the articles being referred and shared with readers’ friends and family who could directly benefit from the information.
Our unique format challenges our contributors to demonstrate their expertise, understanding and passion for their businesses by writing insightful, timely, objective and thought-provoking articles.
Every issue is packed with information for women of all ages. Sections include personal well-being, relationships, education, parenting, home & garden, health & fitness, business, finance, legal topics, travel and cuisine. Every single cover features local women in the community who inspire us for one reason or another. Along with our regular features, the diversity of topics covered ensures that our readers are never short of useful information and inspiration. The combined knowledge of our expert contributors is enhanced by an in-house team of editors and designers, all committed to producing an engaging, informative and innovative community publication for local women. Not only does this maximize reader loyalty but it creates a receptive environment in which readers are eager to learn about topics that affect their lives.
Our magazine readership is not limited to only subscribers like other publications and isn’t limited to people having to purchase them. Southern Maryland Woman, Fairfax Woman and Alexandria Woman magazines are free and distributed to more than 400 (per region) places where women are: grocery stores, retail shops, medical facilities, libraries, pharmacies, fitness centers, cafes, restaurants, professional offices and more.
