Today we are making a big announcement about the future of this project: The Millions has been acquired by Publishers Weekly.
The Millions has grown over time into a vibrant and necessary project, and in recent years I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how the project might live beyond my stewardship. In Publishers Weekly, The Millions will gain a partner that is devoted to the site’s mission and we hope will make the site a lasting institution. We at The Millions uniformly believe this is a great outcome for the site and for its writers and readers.
My longtime associate editor, Adam Boretz, who has also been an editor at Publishers Weekly, will become the editor of The Millions. Departing editor Lydia Kiesling will continue to be involved in the site as a staff writer and in various capacities. We expect our writing and editing staff to remain unchanged. I will no longer be formally involved with The Millions and am happy and relieved to pass the site along to such capable hands.
The Millions will remain at themillions.com URL for the forseeable future, and under Publishers Weekly, The Millions will continue the same literary coverage that it is known for while bringing new resources that will allow for the site to try new things.
Thank you for joining me on this journey,
C. Max Magee, Founder, themillions.com
