Alaskan History

oie_164055HiQywoYDA New Magazine, A Note from the Publisher

Hello, Thank you for your interest in this new magazine. My name is Helen Hegener, and I am the managing editor and the publisher.

I am an Alaskan author, and I have written and published more than a dozen non-fiction books on Alaska’s history through my company, Northern Light Media. My titles in print include a history of Alaskan roadhouses, the construction of the Alaska Railroad, the history of the 1935 Matanuska Colony Project, and many more.

Alaskan History has been foremost among my interests for over half a century, and I’ve shared my passion for history in the books I have published in the last ten years. Now I’m setting a different course in my efforts to share the history of our great state, with a bimonthly magazine which will bring the stories of the people, places and events which shaped Alaskan history to a wider audience. A magazine has always seemed more immediate, accessible and engaging than a book, and a good one will feature a broad range of subjects and photographs in its pages.

I am looking forward to publishing many different writers, for Alaskan History is a huge topic, but this is a start, and I am excited about where it can lead. A simple caveat: This magazine is not designed to be an authoritative journal of history, and I do not presume to portray it as anything other than a simple effort to share some interesting stories, just as I have done with my books.

If you are interested in writing for Alaskan History, send me an email at helenhegener@gmail.com and I will return my writer’s guidelines. I’m still exploring options for a subscription price, advertising, and other details of publishing, but feel free to send an email if you’d like to be added to my mailing list for more information as it becomes available. And thank you for your interest, this is going to be a fun adventure!
