We want the world to discover the real Romania through the stories of ordinary Romanians finally experiencing the freedom to chase their dreams, realize their potential and improve the lives around them.
Until now, Romania was the only European culture without an English language magazine in the United States and Canada. PressOne Quarterly is a selection of stories from PressOne.ro and will be delivered to your doorstep 4 times a year.
We invite you to buy subscriptions for other Romania Lovers in North America. It is time to shatter the false stereotypes and appreciate the culture in Romania. Romania is a safe, cool, green, friendly and beautiful country!
PressOne is an online digital media start-up founded by Voicu Bojan, Mihnea Maruta and Don Lothrop. Our brand is built on well-researched, well-written journalism told through the lens of engaging storytelling and photography. In our first year we exceeded our expectations with nearly 2 million unique readers.
By subscribing to PressOne Quarterly, you become an integral part in sustaining independent media in Romania. The Romanian constitution guarantees the freedom of speech and access to public information, but those rights are not well protected by in practice.
We have experienced the same challenges all independent journalists face: threats to our journalists, denials to public information, cyber-attacks, and delusionary lawsuits from guilty politicians.
The challenges independent media regularly face are magnified by the fact Facebook and Google are collecting $38 billion of annual advertising revenue – forcing news organizations to find new revenue streams and creating the opportunity for fake news to spread rapidly.
For just $50 dollars a year you can help sustain honest, thoughtful independent media for the Romanian people. All of the money from your subscription goes directly to pay the salaries of PressOne journalists.
At PressOne.us you can find our subscription page and a sample of stories in the first edition of PressOne Quarterly. All of stories are about the heart of Romania today – good, ordinary people living extraordinary lives building a better future for their families and community.
