My first Arizona Highways spread vanishes in mushroom cloud

Back in May I was hired by Arizona Highways to venture down to Bisbee and shoot "anything that strikes your fancy for a six page piece that will run this fall." This was a dream assignment from a magazine I've loved for a long time.  

But unfortunately, the October issue with my Bisbee spread won't make it to newsstands due to an error in one of the other articles — a mushroom was labeled as edible when it actually has unpredictable psychotropic and physical effects. In an effort to protect readers, the October issue will not be sold on newsstands. Magazine subscribers will still receive the October issue, as well as information regarding the error.

While this is unfortunate for my project, it's a great example of a publication doing the right thing. Arizona Highways has always been a class act. I feel lucky to work with them.


  1. That's too bad, Jill. We will be passing through Phoenix in late November, and I hoped to score an issue. Guess we'll have to settle for dinner with you and Scott?
