Americans Aran and Margot Lee Shetterly will publish the third edition of their new English-language monthly, Inside Mexico, in January. Targeting both the large English-speaking expat population and tourists, the 20,000 circulation paper "has the look of an American alternative weekly but on higher quality newsprint to give it a magazine feel," reports Editor & Publisher. The paper is published and primarily circulated in Mexico City, but additional copies are distributed in Cancun, Merida, and Acapulco. "We look at this project as a way to build a bridge between English-speakers in Mexico and this country itself," says Aran Shetterly.
