The Women’s Times has named Audrey Manring editor as of May 1. Manring is a former freelance writer and editor with experience in business, technology and community journalism. Before joining The Women’s Times as associate editor in January 2005, she served as editorial director of an IT consulting firm in Stamford, Connecticut, and worked as a management consultant in the financial services sector. In 2001, she co-founded an online children’s art nonprofit and subsequently taught art at Hillcrest Educational Centers in Lenox. “Audrey has been a tremendous asset to The Women’s Times,” said founder and publisher Eugenie Sills. “She possesses very strong writing and editing skills, as well as a deep interest in women and community. We have worked closely together over the past 16 months and share an editorial philosophy—to tell women’s stories and share resources with substance, style and integrity—that we believe serves our readers and advertisers well. I am delighted that Audrey is stepping into this new role. I cannot think of a better person for the job.” Manring, 32, lives in Stockbridge, Mass. She takes over the editorial helm from Sills, who, after 5 years in the editor’s seat, will turn her attention back to marketing and business development. The magazine unveiled a redesigned 4-color cover in March and plans other changes to the magazine this summer. The Women’s Times is the region’s only publication for women. 32,000 copies of the magazine are distributed monthly in two neighboring regions: the Berkshire Region and the Pioneer Valley. Copies are available at venues around the region or by subscription. For more information, call 413-528-5303.
