A gathering for creative, smart communications
Amanda MacLaren is the executive editor of Durham Magazine. Born in Mesa, Ariz., she grew up in Charlotte and attended UNC-Chapel Hill, graduating from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. She’s lived in Durham for six years and has been at the magazine just as long, where she started out as an editorial intern while also managing a part-time job on the copy desk at The Herald-Sun. A huge craft beer lover, you can usually find her — beer in hand — at Ponysaurus, Sam’s Quik Shop or Dain’s Place.
