Describe What You Do.
Angela H. Brown has run SLUG Magazine for over 16 years. She launched the digital version, slugmag.com—where readers explore weekly content, view photo galleries, download SLUG’s back issues, or listen to the mag’s bi-weekly podcast, SLUG Soundwaves. SLUG’s combined digital and print circulation reach over 95,000 readers each month. Brown has created dozens of successful SLUG Magazine community events and was recently the recipient of The Josephine Zimmerman Pioneer in Journalism Award from Utah’s chapter of the society of professional journalists. In 2009, Brown launched Craft Lake City, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization recognized for showcasing Utah’s handmade community with an annual Do-It-Yourself Festival. The DIY festival features over 250 local artisans, a STEM building, 50 local performers and attracts more than 20,000 attendees each year. In her spare time, Brown loves to print silver gelatin images in her photographic darkroom, run outdoors and volunteer for various local committees and advisory boards.
