In our 14th year as the premier Arts and Entertainment publication in the Pacific Northwest.


In the days following August 9, we literally read all of the comments on Facebook (365 and counting) about Margaret Bikman leaving the Bellingham Herald after 26 years. What a fine tribute to an amazing journalist and friend.

We are honored to announce that Margaret has joined Entertainment News NW magazine. Margaret will be blogging and writing online and in print about music, theater, dance, visual arts, literary events and more.

Watch for her posts at:

Please email her at with arts and entertainment ideas and news for Whatcom and Skagit counties (and maybe beyond); please allow plenty of lead time, and send high res jpgs as well. (please identify the photographer to credit).
