Fact, Not Fiction... Marissa Mayer in Paris... Changes at Martha Stewart...

The New Yorker will introduce a new “world changers” special issue this week on newsstands instead of a fiction issue.

MARTHA’S TOP PICKS: Martha Stewart made more changes to the top of the masthead at Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings on Friday. Vanessa Holden, the editor in chief of Weddings, was moved over to Living in the same role, while Katie Hatch, the style director at Weddings, was promoted to editor in chief of the title.

The moves further reflect MSLO’s move to having editors with heavy style backgrounds run their magazines as opposed to wordsmiths. Holden was the creative director of Real Simple and co-founder and creative director of Donna Hay before joining MSLO in August 2008 as editor in chief of Weddings. Hatch was a fashion editor at Blueprint until it folded in 2007, and joined Weddings as style director shortly after. She also launched her own clothing line less than a year ago. MSLO in January also named former Real Simple style director Anna Last editor in chief of Everyday Food.

At Living, Holden succeeds Gael Towey, who had been acting editor in chief since February. Towey took over when Michael Boodro, a former editor at Elle Decor, Culture + Travel and The New York Times Magazine, exited. Towey will continue with MSLO as editorial director. Holden and Hatch will report to Towey.
