Self Reduces Print Output, Names Carolyn Kylstra Editor

A big change.

Condé Nast is cutting back on Self. The magazine’s last regular print edition will be its February 2017 issue.  Going forward, Self will publish special print editions focused on health and wellness.

As a result of the change, Carolyn Kylstra has been named editor in chief of Self. She succeeds Joyce Chang, who is leaving the brand.

Kylstra was most recently Self’s executive digital director. She previously served as BuzzFeed’s health editor and Women’s Health’s site director.

“Audiences are more discerning than ever about how they live, and in Self, we have a popular and established brand that speaks directly to the burgeoning health and wellness movement,” said Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor in chief of Vogue, in a statement. “Carolyn has played a pivotal role in refining and focusing Self and understands how to create content that excites and inspires our audiences.”
