Artful Living is proud to announce that Editor-in-Chief Kate Nelson has received a 2019 Folio: Rising Star Award. The prestigious accolade is being presented to just 29 individuals considered to be the nation’s best and brightest up-and-comers who are making their mark on the media industry. She will be honored alongside the rest of her Rising Star class at the annual Folio: Show in New York City on October 31.
Nelson began working with Artful Living, a quarterly lifestyle magazine headquartered in Minneapolis, in 2010, just two years after the publication’s inception. She started as a copy editor and has since proven her remarkable talent, rising to executive editor in 2015 and most recently to editor-in-chief in January 2019. She has been instrumental in shaping this leading regional consumer lifestyle magazine with national appeal. Today, Nelson is the youngest female chief editor in the Twin Cities market.
“It’s an incredible honor to be named to this year’s Folio: Rising Star class,” says Nelson. “At Artful Living, we strive to bring our readers provocative, unexpected editorial content, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for our hard work.”
This summer, Nelson was part of a small select group of international media leaders who participated in Yale School of Management’s Leadership Strategies in Print and Digital Media Course. And earlier this year, Artful Living was recognized for its editorial excellence with two James Beard Media Award nominations and one win. The publisher was also named to the 2019 Inc. 5000, which honors America’s fastest growing private companies.
“While all of our award programs acknowledge the outstanding work the Folio: community does, our Rising Stars are among our most special honorees,” notes Caysey Welton, content director at Folio:, the industry’s go-to resource for news, business intelligence and peer-to-peer networking. “After all, these standout individuals will grow to become the leaders and trailblazers of our industry. And based on this year’s finalists, I can say with certainty that the future looks bright!”
