The publishers of PresentMagazine.com announced today that the online publication would cease publishing at the end of April.

In a letter to readers titled "The future of Present," publishers

Pete Dulin and Pam Taylor wrote that it was time for them "to pursue

other goals and opportunities."



"We have done what we set out to do and we are gratified to see others

doing the same," Dulin and Taylor wrote in their letter. "We're ready to step back and focus our time and energy

on other endeavors."

The online-only publication was started in 2005 to cover Kansas City's

creative and small-business community.

As for their future endeavors, Dulin and Taylor gave a glimpse of

what their post-Present life will be like:

Pete: Currently, I am the publication and website editor at the

nonprofit International Essential Tremor Foundation

(www.essentialtremor.org). As a Slow Food KC board member, I am growing

more involved in the local food scene. As a freelance writer, I write

about local restaurants for Home in the Northland Magazine and have

written the weekly "Last Bite" recipe feature in the Kansas City Star

Magazine since 2009. I will continue to write about food, music, and

other topics of interest for other publications and on PeteDulin.com.

Finally, I want to finish writing my future noir novel set in Kansas

City.

Pam: My life-long passion has been the science of learning. As a home

educator for my three kids and a learning coach and tutor for thirty

more students, my time is increasingly spent in this area. This spring,

I will continue my studies and start making headway in becoming a

Licensed Professional Counselor and, eventually, a psychologist. My

goal is to grow my business, my-learning-coach.com, and open a coaching

center for kids and adults with various learning needs--including

dyslexia and dysgraphia. I also am looking forward to focusing on my

own drawing and painting.


Best of luck to both of them.
