Sister 2 Sister Magazine Files For Bankruptcy

Ever since the internet has taken over, magazines have been suffering. Many magazines have folded and decided to put their energy into their online editions and now Sister 2 Sister magazine has been forced to do the same.  The women’s mag has reportedly filed for bankruptcy protection and is putting the print edition on hiatus. While the magazine is on hold, the focus will be put on their website.
Their money problems have seemed to affect the payroll of their writers as well. A writer took to Twitter to voice his frustrations with the publication. “Never do biz with Sister to Sister mag! I did 3 stories for them 3 months ago. Now they say they are bankrupt and can’t pay me!” journalist Manny Otiko posted on his timeline yesterday (Oct.27).
Sister 2 Sister has been up-and-running for 25 years. The owner and publisher Jamie Foster Brown is currently preparing a statement about the status of the magazine.
