How the Washingtonian Humanizes Its Writers

By including a funny, memorable detail about them in the table of contents. For example:

● Senior Manager Editor William O’Sullivan: Considers his folding bike, which he bought exactly two years ago to celebrate a milestone birthday, one of the best purchases he’s ever made.

● Fashion Editor Kate Bennett: Went to Palm Beach after launching the first issue of Washingtonian MOM.

● Online Dining Editor Jessica Voelker: Put 300 miles on her car driving among Virginia wineries for the article on page 121. Says the view at Delaplane Cellars was worth the trip.
