Little Village

Little Village is (probably) Iowa’s most widely read independent news & culture magazine. Launched in 2001, and with roots stretching back to at least the early 90s, LV has been a defining cultural voice in Iowa for the last 20+ years. 
Our mission is to improve Iowa by informing participation in the state’s culture and government. With a reach of over 200,000 readers each month, the magazine and website content focuses on quality of life (healthcare, education, affordability and accessibility); equity & justice (environmental, racial, gender, labor and economic, and events (arts and culture criticism and the most widely used calendar in the state).
