The Dwellings Issue

Saltbox, colonial, gambrel, re-imagined barn, post and beam structure, houseboat, maybe even an airstream...home can be whatever and wherever you make it. For our 10th installment, we're exploring the creative dwellings of fellow New Englanders. Join us as we explore the region and the unique structures that people call home.

We are always looking for artists, photographers, writers, recipe-crafters and other creative types to collaborate with. If you're interested or have any great ideas to help bring this next issue to life, we'd love to hear about it! Explore our submissions page for more information and drop us a note!
