Frazier named editor of Vicksburg Living magazine
When Vicksburg Living was launched in 2014, its mission was to feature the people, the places and the stories that make Vicksburg such an amazing place to live, work and play. Five years later it is still telling those stories.
Over the previous 27 issues, there have been more than 100 stories written and shared and thousands of pictures detailing the life and history of Vicksburg. And through each of those now 27 editions, there has been one thing that has remained the same; Terri Cowart Frazier.
Monday, Vicksburg Newsmedia, the parent company for Vicksburg Living, which is a sister publication of The Vicksburg Post, announced Frazier had been named the magazine’s editor.
“When I think of Vicksburg Living, the first thing — or person — I think of is Terri,” Vicksburg Newsmedia editor Tim Reeves. “She has been there from the very start of this magazine; there from when it was first discussed as an idea in 2014.
“She has been instrumental in its growth, its success and its ascension to being among the very best magazines in Mississippi.”
Vicksburg Living was named the best magazine produced by daily newspapers in Mississippi during the Mississippi Press Association’s 2018 Better Newspaper Contest. It also earned first place honors in the 2017 contest.
The winners in the 2019 Better Newspaper Contest will be announced this summer.
In the most recent edition of Vicksburg Living, the January/February edition, Frazier wrote about the magazine’s history over its first five years.
“Unlike the newspaper, the magazine has allowed us to tell more in-depth stories, showcase beautiful homes and highlight historical moments,” she wrote in her welcoming column. “Vicksburg is a unique small town with so many interesting people and places to visit.”
