In the not-so-distant past a Delta native returned home with big ideas. Scott Coopwood launched his beloved Delta Magazine in 2003. It’s always a treat when Delta Magazine arrives; it feels like getting a special present. The latest issue has long been the topic of conversations at cocktail parties, coffee shops and dinner tables. Many have examined it’s pages looking for someone or somewhere they know.

The periodical has evolved and grown over the years and stays on the cutting edge of all things Mississippi Delta. Delta Magazine makes the Delta look almost as good as it looks in person.

The most recent publication is touted as “The Ultimate Insider’s Guide. (Volume 11, Number 4) Clarksdale, our hometown, made a big splash in the issue, including a feature on the Delta Bohemian Guest House.

Here are a few of the places mentioned and/or featured in this unique issue that are close to our hearts: Abe’s Bar-BQ, Delta back roads, OxbowDelta BistroThe Blue BiscuitChristopher KeywoodHey Joe’sThe Alluvian Hotel, Mississippi beers, Quapaw Canoe CompanySweet Magnolia Ice CreamCristen Craven BarnardDelta Bohemian Guest HouseThe Lofts at the Five & DimeThe Squeeze BoxThe Loft at HopsonChamoun’s Rest HavenMcCarty’s PotteryDoe’s Eat PlaceDelta State University, Ice Storm of 1994 ( ­čÖü ), Delta Blues MuseumGround Zero Blues ClubShack Up InnB.B. King MuseumPo’ Monkey’sDockery PlantationMississippi Blues TrailJuke Joint Festival,  and The final word by Malcolm White. (I’m sure we missed a few.)

Fifth-generation Deltan Scott Coopwood is the founder and publisher and also a talented musician. His editor-in-chief, Melissa Baker Townsend, also a fifth-generation Deltan, is tapped in to the changes and trends sweeping over our flatlands and reports them in a meaningful and personal way.

In this issue of Delta Magazine (Volume 11, Number 4), we promote the Delta’s many offerings. If you have not had a chance to explore our region of the state, we hope you’ll use this edition as your official tour guide. —Scott Coopwood, Publisher

As a lifestyle magazine editor, I spend far less time editing actual copy and photography than editing what I see, taste and discover daily “in the field,” which is often in the literal sense. For each issue of Delta Magazine, we set out to bring you the edited best of “where we’ve been, where to go next,” particularly for our regular On the Road and Food sections. — Melissa Baker Townsend, Editor

Each issue features acclaimed artists, famous faces, cool places, recipes and food features galore, architecture and interior design, editor’s shopping picks, Delta-style storytelling and real journalism. Close to the heart of its subscribers is a celebration of the region’s cultural heritage, so there’s always a steady diet of nostalgia in every issue, too. —Delta Magazine

    Good morning. I just read an article in our local newspaper in Lafayette,La. It was about scoot coopwood. Please tell him hello for me. He will remember me from our camp in pass Christian,ms. He and his family would visit his uncle’s camp which was 2 doors down from us. This was when we were teenagers. I dated his sister a few times while I was at ole miss. Here is even better part. I purchased the property that his uncle’s camp was on about 4 years ago. His uncle was j w Thomas. Also. While at last years LSU/Ole Miss game in Oxford I asked a couple where a certain cafe was located on the square. They were from the delta. I mentioned the coopwood family and they knew them. They knew j w Thomas very well. It was fabulous to see he has done so well in business as well as music. Please congratulate him for me. If he has time to call and chat my number is 337 654 2830.
