YOUR MAGAZINE 3
M AboutMia Mia is the voice of women in Northeastern Oklahoma. Each issue is filled with inspiring stories, motivational columns, and helpful advice for living a deep, full life at any age. Mia is by women, about women and for women. The 7” x 10” full-color, free publication is published quarterly and distributed in Tulsa and surrounding areas. Real-life stories about relationships, money, career, health, motherhood and other issues that women face are intertwined with articles about food, art, books and travel.
The magazine is also a forum where women can show their creative side – with poetry, photography and other art forms. Mia is more than just a magazine; it’s a community where women can share their life experiences, and learn from one another. Because the publication fills a unique niche in regional magazines, women are anxious to spread the word about Mia. Our unique marketing strategy delivers Mia into the hands of women through direct contact, as well as through distribution sites where women gather. Women hand other women the magazine, which guarantees that your ad is seen. Mia is also available in locations throughout Northeastern Oklahoma, including coffee
shops, restaurants, spas, boutiques, doctor’s offices and more. We believe in giving you, our advertisers, the best exposure for your money by offering competitive ad rates, professional design, and opportunities to connect with the women who buy your product or service. Mia is a gathering place for women, and that includes our advertisers. We value what you have to offer our readers and so we invite you to join the conversation that takes place in the pages of Mia. We look forward to partnering with you to help spread the word about your business or service. Mia is your magazine.

Mia Content We believe that sharing stories is the best form of communication and the most direct way to build a community of friends. Mia is filled with the stories of women from all walks of life. “My Journey” gives readers the opportunity to meet a woman whose story inspires and motivates, a woman they might never know except through the pages of Mia. Because health, relationship and money issues are important to our readers, we feature a column about each: “My Health,” “My Relationships,” and “My Money.” Women who have something to share about these issues offer readers their own life experience, as well as advice and creative solutions in each of these areas. Art is important in Mia, and we offer women a forum to share their creativity. We publish poetry, photography and different art forms, as well as stories of women artists in the column “My Art.” We also know that women love to travel, read, decorate and cook, and so our columns, “My Travels,” “My Books,” and “My Tastes” give women a place to find out about the latest trends, the best reads, interesting destinations both near and far, and the tastiest foods to put on their tables. Women care about making a difference in their community and the world. “My Cause” tells the stories of women who are passionate about making the world a better place. As an advertiser, you’ll be featured in a magazine that is widely read by women who make decisions about where they shop, what services they use, and how they spend their money. Your presence in Mia will give you a place in our community of women.
