New magazine launches in Williamsburg VA

Want to discover the  best-kept secrets of the greater Williamsburg, Va. area ?

imageThe Local Scoop magazine has just launched with the first issue hitting stands November 2015.

Stephanie Heinatz ,former newspaper journalist, professional writer and entrepreneur is the newly named Editor of the Williamsburg edition.

Heinatz, founder of Consociate Media, a Virginia-based public relations and consulting firm, cut her teeth as a newspaper journalist. Whether working on assignment in her own hometown, or in the remote areas of East Africa or war-torn Iraq, Heinatz chased one thing – the story.

“Stories are the most powerful way to reach people, to inspire people, to enact change for good in our world,” Heinatz said. “When you look at what The Local Scoop has set out to do, it’s just that.”

Heinatz said she’s inspired herself by McFadden, who described the goals of the magazine to become an economic driver for our communities, couched in a lifestyle format.

 

The inaugural Williamsburg edition  includes a Williamsburg food and wine crawl, holiday fashion spread, tips for gift giving to unique charitable groups in greater Williamsburg through the year’s most giving season, a feature on the emerging IMPACT 100 group, a one-on-one with Williamsburg Winery’s Matthew Meyer and a look at how Williamsburg has grown from its roots as a charming colonial tourist stop to one that boasts amenities of any modern mecca.
