You & SRQ. This is where you will find information about the special sections we have planned for future editions of SRQ | The Magazine.

New Special Section: November 2015 Has Lots of Reasons to Celebrate


Sometimes, the stars align in just the right way. When planning out the special sections in the upcoming November edition of SRQ | The Magazine, we wanted to recognize local businesses that take care of others. Wouldn’t you know, November is National Caregiver and National Hospice/Palliative Care Month and Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th?! There simply isn’t a better time to get the word out on the wonderful organizations and businesses that care for others—especially those that have cared for and served us.

We’re proud to include Lending A Hand to the November edition of SRQ! Businesses that serve the elderly, support caregivers and veterans are the perfect fit for Lending A Hand. This special section is a chance to salute our veterans, communicate your expert level of care for those with special needs or highlight the ways you support our community’s caregivers.

November has a lot to celebrate. We hope you’ll join us!

Editorially inspired, this special section is designed with “making a list and checking it twice” in mind. Each participant will feature a product image of their choosing, a brief section of copy (enticing buyers to get the perfect gift at their shop), and contact information (a great way to share your holiday hours!).

Options are available for full, half and quarter pages. We hope you’ll join us for a holiday shopping experience like none other! And since Holidays At Home is brought to shoppers by the same people delivering the very best ways to live local every month, we know they’ll be ready to gift fabulous finds from the Gulf Coast to everyone on their list.

Meet NOSH, the New SRQ Foodie Channel!

2015-09-Nosh-M2Sales-POSTCARDNormally in publishing, we use the phrase “hot off the presses” – but with the launch of Nosh, our new foodie channel, we’re tickled that it is served hot from Sarasota’s greatest kitchens!

SRQ Media is pleased to embark on our tastiest adventure yet. Through Nosh, we can’t wait to explore the culinary gems throughout our region and bring back tasty bites of information to savor with you, our loyal audience.

The Dish
The idea of Nosh has been simmering for a while now, and we’re pleased to serve it up fresh this fall. Starting with the exclusive Kitchen Confidential in the September edition of SRQ Magazine introducing our foodies to the chefs of this year’s Nosh restaurants, the journey into our culinary culture is just beginning. For participating local restaurants and purveyors of fine foods, Nosh is all about engaging with SRQ’s audience through bite-sized content.

Got a new menu item? How about a specialty ingredient that is so cool you just have to get the word out. Or the crowd-pleasing dish on your menu that has humble roots that you’ve always wanted the community to know about? This is the perfect way to tell the story of your food to a hungry crowd. These tasty tidbits will be shared through our network of digital content channels (including SRQ Daily, SRQMAG.COM, CocoTele and other outlets). We’ll also be showcasing participating kitchens in the 2016 SRQ ACCESS – our annual visitor and newcomers guide.

Stay tuned for more information. And stay hungry!
