As a magazine editor, writer, and visual story producer, Marjorie E. Gage has made her career researching history and traditions, tracking and forecasting trends, and collaborating with photographers, graphic designers, videographers, and digital professionals to celebrate creativity in the context of everyday life, in words and pictures.
At the Hearst Corporation, she served as Deputy Editor of Country Living's flagship magazine, Editor of CL Gardener, Editor of the SIP CL Holidays, and ghost contributor to a stack of lifestyle books. From 2007 to 2013, she turned her journalistic sights to the urban beat, helping Wainscot Media redesign, relaunch, and reposition New York Spaces magazine as a top luxury lifestyle, culture, and design resource for Metropolitan New York. There, as Executive Editor, she collaborated with a talented group of writers, photographers, stylists, architects, interior designers, preservationists, and real estate professionals to create content that celebrated the way New Yorkers live now. Together, the New York Spaces team launched the brand's first website as well as its popular Top 50 Designers event, and helped shape the template for product-oriented spinoffs and custom content, including The Goods resource guide and the premier issue of home furnishing giant Lillian August's first-ever branded magalogue.
Previously, Marjorie served as the Executive Editor of New York Home (subsequently incorporated into New York Spaces) and Managing Editor of the luxury culture and travel title Absolute | New York. She has contributed as a freelance writer, story packager, editor, and content producer to This Old House (Time Inc. | This Old House Ventures), and appeared in feature segments on PBS's Victory Garden and NBC's Today.
As founder and director of Art + Intuition, an independent editorial and custom content studio, she directs branded communications, photo shoots, website development, social media, presentations, live events, and bespoke publications for a select roster of small businesses and nonprofit organizations.
She currently serves on the board of the Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library, in Cold Spring, New York, where she has made her home for almost 25 years. Along the way, she has raised a daughter, restored two antique houses (and one on the way), designed and tended gardens, walked her dog, escaped to museums and mountaintops, captured more photographs than can fit in the Cloud, and, if you will forgive the cliché, learned something new every day.
Every story she has told has become a part of her own life story.
