Zooey Magazine is a collaborative print publication devoted to women in their 20s and 30s. With a focus on all things vintage-inspired, Zooey focuses not only popular culture but fashion, art, crafts, and stories on the incredible women of today’s time. It is a magazine for smart and creative women who want more out of entertainment.
The idea of Zooey started with one simple vision… to “empower women through entertainment.” Editor-in-Chief Lucia Tran founded ‘Zooey’ in September of 2010 after blogging for two years prior. The name ‘Zooey’ derived from J.D. Salinger’s protagonist Zooey, a character in his beloved novel “Franny and Zooey,” who was described as a person of genuine intelligence and sophistication. By creating a magazine that reflects a mere image of Zooey, Lucia hoped to convey an inspiring and enjoyable atmosphere for forward adults who enjoy good reading and beautiful art.
Since its launch, the magazine has thrived as a nationally-distributed print publication devoted to women everywhere featuring female business owners and entrepreneurs, organic beauty, and talents including Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory), Anna Paquin (True Blood), Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), Julianne Hough (Rock of Ages), Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, 50/50), and so much more.
