About the Publishers
Linda McNally-Cail is the publisher and Pamela Marcus is the associate publisher of Minnesota Creative. But they're far more than mere business partners; they're best friends who share an abiding passion for advancing Minnesota's creative industry.
For two decades, Linda has promoted Minnesota’s creative professionals through the predecessor to this website, the Creative Sourcebook. She took over publication in 1999 and asked Pam to join her. For Pam, the opportunity was more than a business venture; it was destiny. "I feel as if I've come home. My 85-year-old father is a professional photographer, as is my brother. Essentially, I grew up in the industry."
"Both of us feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the creative community," says Linda. "Over the years we've had the opportunity to work with so many amazing people – great writers, artists, printers…"
Yet, over the years, there's been sweeping changes that threaten the industry. In response, Linda and Pam radically changed the way they do business – transforming the Creative Sourcebook from a print publication to the electronic format you're using now.
Their mission: to provide the resources and tools that help creative professionals thrive in a fast-paced, fast-changing business environment.
Their vision: to launch Minnesota's creative industry to a new level of success by quickly and easily connecting creative professionals with those who need their services.
"We know, through the pleasure of working with them all of these years, that the caliber of Minnesota's creative talent is unparalleled," says Linda. "We created this website to provide the powerful exposure they deserve."
