Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
California and the West. Is there a region of the country as mythologized, as memorialized, or as misunderstood? Alta is a new quarterly journal for anyone seeking an insider’s take on this most forward-thinking region. Arts and culture, technology and the environment, food and fashion: what happens here happens everywhere. Each large-format issue (California demands a wide lens) demystifies the region with compelling storytelling from the state’s best writers, photographers, and illustrators. Founded by William R. Hearst III, Alta offers an exciting—and much-needed—literary perspective where the conversation between writer and reader is as diverse and vibrant as the place itself.
