We are a publication created by and for New England.
New England is a uniquely wonderful region that is defined by its seasons. Its harsh and bitterly cold winters delight in the vibrant cherry blossoms of spring. Blissful summer evenings listening to frogs croak on the lake shore give way to the bursting colors of autumn's foliage. But these seasons are not the only thing that defines New England. We believe that the stories told here for centuries – a tradition we hope to continue – is integral to our foundation.
t.e.l.l. New England was formed in 2013 as a creative outlet and way to express a unified love for New England through photography and story telling. It has since grown into a quarterly digital publication that consistently delivers unique stories from New England by New Englanders. t.e.l.l. New England is our ode to New England, its people and its stories.
Delivering Unique Stories of New England by New Englanders.
t.e.l.l. wouldn't be where we are today without the amazing support and help of our contributors. A talented team of photographers, writers, illustrators, and artists have all helped shape this magazine. And we plan on working with contributors moving forward. Many of our features have included recipes utilizing regionally and seasonally relevant foods, 'Meet the Maker' features, community guides, DIY-tips and tricks, and many more. Each issue is shaped by two factors, New England and a pre-selected theme, and will continue to be formed in this manner. The features and stories fall into place around those things, and are brought to life with stunning photography, poetry, long-form written features, Q&As, illustrations and other artwork.
We are committed to telling the story of 'local'.
"Local" is more than just a movement. Local is supporting your neighbor, the farmer and their family down the street and the 'mom & pop' store on the corner. Supporting local helps to build a sense of community and encourages us to define a sense of place. Local creates character, and we feel that New England is full of character. At t.e.l.l., we love sharing the story of local. Our goal is to consistently seek out those small businesses; cafes, bakeries, farms, restaurants, makers, crafters and doers - and give them a voice to the larger community through t.e.l.l.
