About Us

Deep in the heart of the American South

Easily the most unique regional lifestyle publication, Delta Magazine is also known as the most southern magazine on earth.* Its muse is the Mississippi Delta, a place widely known for its literary, musical and culinary heritage, as well as for its legendary entertaining style and social traditions.

Published bi-monthly, Delta Magazine’s fresh content, cutting-edge photography and devoted readership is what truly sets it apart among others in a sea of publications in the marketplace today. Our readers subscribe to six seasonal issues, each with its own personality deeply inspired by the land itself that reflect a sense of place unique to this famous region.

And like “the Delta,” as it’s affectionately known, there’s always a fun contrast and diversity in content: duck hunts to debutante balls, historic features to haute cuisine, Delta blues to Delta wedding celebrations. 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.

The likes of Morgan Freeman, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis and Robert Plant have graced our award-winning covers, with the magazine sold on newsstands in four Southern states.

Upon its launch in 2003, Delta Magazine was named one of the Top Magazine Launches in the nation by magazine guru Samir Husni. Based in Cleveland, Mississippi, Delta Magazine is published by Coopwood Magazines, Inc. The publisher, founder and owner is fifth-generation Deltan, J. Scott Coopwood.

DELTA Magazine. It’s a distinct magazine deep in the South, deep in the Delta and deep in the hearts of a loyal readership.

  • The original phrase, “The most southern place on earth,” was coined by James C. Cobb, author of a book by the same title.
