More was a women's lifestyle magazine published 10 times a year by the Meredith Corporation[3] with a rate base of 1.3 million and a circulation of 1.8 million.[citation needed] A Canadian version was published under license by Transcontinental from 2007 to 2012.

History and profile[edit]

The magazine was started in 1997[3] and the first issue appeared in September 1998.[4]

More also produces the More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women's Half-Marathon, a NYC event in partnership with the New York Road Runners, "Escape with More" at the Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa and the "Fierce and Fabulous Girls Night Out" event series. In 2010 More introduced the annual More Beauty Search Contest, which women over 30 can enter for the chance to win cash prizes and be featured in the magazine. In 2013, More launched "More Uncorked", a new wine club in partnership with Women of the Vine that delivers wines made by artisan women winemakers of California.

In February 2010, More was updated with a new logo[5] and tagline: "For Women of Style and Substance".

In February 2016, the Meredith Corporation announced that More would cease publication with the April 2016 issue.[3][6]
