Hearth Magazine is a place where stories are told. We are a community of dreamers, doers and makers that are living their dreams. We love to feature artists and artisans that value the art of living and tradition, not the convenience of this modern world.
This world is filled with amazing stories that are just waiting to be told. Every person has something unique about them and these stories are what fill the pages of Hearth Magazine. Without an outlet, many of these stories would never be told and that would truly be a tragedy. We believe that these stories are what make this world a great place to live and simply must be shared.
Hearth Magazine has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2013. With the support of our amazing community of craftsmen, writers, photographers, artists, and dreamers, we have grown more in the last year than we could have imagined. What started out as a collection of stories on our online journal has blossomed into four print volumes and several Hearth Gatherings that have been held across the U.S. in 2014.
Our quarterly format allows us to search for the best stories, photographs and recipes to share with our loyal followers. In between the print issues, our online journal will have the same high quality stories and pictures on a weekly basis.
We welcome your input and would love to hear about the stories you think need to be told. We are excited to work with photographers, artists, cooks, artisans, writers, and the dreamers that have stories they want to share. If you’re interested in learning more about collaborating with Hearth Magazine, please see our submissions page.

Tonya Peterson, Creative Director
Tonya’s love for photography started as a nanny in Long Island, New York when she took a community college photography class. It only took one time of stepping into a darkroom, and she was hooked. She graduated from the prestigious Rocky Mountain School of Photography Summer in 2004 and has been running her own successful photography business since then, specializing in wedding photography and teaching. Tonya is married to her high school sweetheart Alex and together they have two spunky girls – Paige and Whitni.
