Originally launched in 1887, Scribner Magazine introduced new authors and published short form pieces by the authors who were published by Scribner, such as Henry James, Edith Wharton, Theodore Roosevelt, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway. In 1939, the magazine discontinued its circulation due to low numbers (in comparison to Atlantic Monthly and Harper’s Monthly).
Today, Scribner has announced the relaunch of the magazine, but this time, in a digital format. In keeping with its original purpose, the new Scribner Magazine intends to “pull back the curtain, to reveal a more intimate look at writers and publishers: where writers work, the music they listen to, the seeds of their books” (Source).
According to Publishers Weekly, “The online magazine will include original writing and interactive media, prose and audiobook excerpts, photo galleries, author-curated music playlists, bookseller reviews, and insider looks at the world of publishing. The first edition kicks off with an essay from Anthony Doerr, about the writing of his novel, All The Light We Cannot See, a 2014 National Book Award finalist” (Source).
