Isabelle Southcott’s publication, Powell River Living Magazine, recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, marking over a decade of serving the local Powell River community. Nestled on the upper Sunshine Coast, Powell River Living Magazine is a locally owned and independent, leisure and lifestyle publication that reflects the lives and needs of local residents.
Southcott, a seasoned journalist who began her successful career working with daily newspapers in Nova Scotia, launched Powell River Living Magazine after realizing that her community was being underserved by the publishing industry. She wanted to offer her readers the option of reading a magazine that focused on human successes rather than the sensationalism that so often consumes the industry. Today, along with her Associate Publisher, Sean Percy, Southcott continues to offer her community access to diverse perspectives with 16 issues published per year for residents to enjoy.
