About Dote


Dote Magazine is the handbook for living a well-styled and meaningful life. We are focused on local artisans, entrepreneurs, and professionals who add to our cultural development and anyone passionate about fostering a creative, thoughtful life. We believe that beauty surrounds us every day in ways that you would never expect, and we want to help you see it and create it for yourself. Our goal isn’t to break news or to feature the newest hip and trendy things, but to show you how to achieve a little extra beauty in all aspects of your life and how our local artisans and entrepreneurs can help. In creating a magazine like Dote, we have created an outlet for writers, photographers, artists, artisans, musicians, and a large variety of small businesses to showcase themselves not only in promotion but in purpose. We want to tell their stories.
