Share Article

A year ago this week, Los Angeles online magazine, Shea Magazine, began publishing its unique blend of interviews, essays and other media mayhem.

'We’ve built a strong core audience of tastemakers so far and we’re ready to jump to the next level.' – Tony Shea, Editor-in-Chief.

Eclectic, online, mixed media, arts and culture magazine, Shea Magazine celebrates its first year of publishing seriocomic content from the worlds of literature, film, music and visual arts this week.

Launched last October, the Los Angeles-based Shea Magazine’s editorial coverage includes personal essays like "My Favorite Car Accident" to pop culture riffs like "Why Kenny F’ing Powers is the Best Boyfriend You’ll Ever Have."

It showcases the work of a diverse crew of writers, directors, musicians, artists and thinkers whose works has been showcased by Penguin, NBC, HBO, FOX, Starz, TNT and Disney and other outlets. Among them are Lenny Schmidt (True Blood, Southland), Bill Chott (The Ringer, Wizards of Waverly Place), Jim Coughlin (The Human BEEing), Christopher T. Wood (Friends With Benefits), Lang Parker (Last Comic Standing, Beverly Hills 90210), and 10 time Moth “storyslam” winner Carlos Kotkin.

“Shea Magazine is ‘a celebration of mixed messages’ so we’re constantly working to add new contributors with a unique sensibility to provide our audience with experiences they won’t get at other sites,” says the magazine’s founder and editor-in-chief Tony Shea, who works closely with section-chief Jay Hood and a bevy of award-winning contributing editors, including Daedalus Howell, Mary Kay Holmes, Dan O’Day McClellan, Katy McCaffrey, Shannon Murfree, and Nate Johnson.

In the coming year, Shea Magazine will be expanding its localized coverage in new international quarters by establishing additional editorial hubs in London, Paris, Vienna, Tokyo, Rome and Sydney.

Shea Magazine is part of the LitBreaker Ad Network, which advertises across more than 50 of the most successful and well known online pop culture magazines and blogs including The Rumpus, Propeller and Ploughshares Blog.

“We’re keeping good company,” says Shea and “We’re tremendously happy with the way our first year has gone. We’ve built a strong core audience of tastemakers so far and we’re ready to jump to the next level.”
