RESIDENTS LOVE OUR AWARD-WINNING MONTHLY MAGAZINE

FOR OUR FUN THEMES AND UNIQUE DESIGN EACH MONTH

Since January 2006 Glancer Magazine has been publishing a monthly community living magazine featuring all things local. What started out as printed publication, our magazine has become one of the most widely recognized publications in west suburban Chicago. Through the years, our editorial coverage has expanded into DuPage, Kane and Kendall counties, covering resident achievements, celebrity news, society, dining, lifestyle and more via both our print and digital platforms.

 

Today, Glancer Magazine remains a leader in local publishing, marketing and event coverage among females age 35-65 throughout west suburban Chicagoland. Our circulation consists of several combined digital-exclusive channels including a uniquely themed digital magazine delivered direct to those who subscribe monthly (see Editorial Calendar below), a daily website rich in local content and breaking news stories, several social media pages, push notifications via the Glancer Magazine app, and more. 

We invite local organizations to send their community-specific press release and story pitches to our editorial team at editorial@glancermagazine.com for consideration. All submissions are not guaranteed to publish and widely chosen for their theme relevance, timing of their story and charitable involvement.
