In 2012 I returned to magazine writing. This phase begins with Tucson Natural Awakening Magazine. My byline is on thirty two articles and I authored five newsbriefs.
These days I have realized a friendlier voice in my writing. My writing is informative, insightful and entertaining. I want my readers to know and understand what is available, how is it possible and where they can experience it.
I've written articles and opinions for City Magazine (Edited & Published by Chuck Bowden and Dick Vonier) in the '80", for Inside Tucson Business when Sheila Storm served as editor in the mid 1990's. When first finding my Tucson footing in the very early 80's I wrote for a pre-Tucson Weekly publication Tucson Examiner. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin I published regularly in CitySide between 1977 and 1980. My journalism in those days ranged from feature articles on artists, editorials, regional informative to investigative/researched cover stories. I first dipped into magazine writing in the early 70's when I found a friendly editor in a weekly small town newspaper The Oceana County News in Whitehall, Michigan.
I have two wordpress blogs, Coach Bruder and Tao Time as well as publish two newsletters periodically on both topics. See Newsletter Archives for a collection. Subscriptions are available at no cost at my website dalebruder.com.
Enjoy the Artist Spotlights.
