Matt Steele, Publisher, Little Village
Fellow Rotarian Tom Cilek introduced Matt Steele for today’s program on Little Village.
Little Village is an independent, community-supported news and culture publication from Iowa City. The paper was founded in 2001 by members of Icon, the alt-weekly that served Iowa City from 1993-2001. The Little Village events calendar is among the area’s largest and most relied upon, connecting readers with critical cultural opportunities – some locally grown. For breaking event information, install their Best of IC app and/or follow Little Village on Facebook for the latest updates. Little Village is published twice monthly on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Circulation is at 10,000 with 55,000 views per issue. Over the 15 year history, 400 local writers have been featured in the publication. The publication is always free and they are always seeking submissions of letters to the editor, original writing and artwork from the public.
Little Village moved into street level office space at 623 S. Dubuque St. six months ago. Because of its success Little Village has created 13 staff jobs that help support all of their endeavors and further their mission to be relevant to many different demographics. New offerings include Little Village Tickets, Little Village Creative Services and the Feeder app. Connect with LV Tickets to sell tickets to your events. LV ticketing partners pay no fees, and save money with half-price advertising and free custom websites for their venues or events. LV Creative Services partners with local businesses to assist them with custom publications, photography and website development. The new Feeder app is an off campus meal plan. The app will allow parents of students or student athletes to load money onto the app to ensure that the money is indeed spent on food and not on other items.
