It's Everywhere.com Magazine. One of the 'Small Team of Editors' is Our Own Tiffany Maleshefski

The images and short stories that fill these magazines are submitted by its readers. Folks post their photos to a Web site, the site's readers vote on the best ones, then a small team of editors assembles its top choices into the magazines. If their work is published, the photographers receive $100, plus a year's subscription. Even in this Twittering digital age in which tens of millions of self-publishers have created their own blogs, there is still enough of a thrill in being published in a bound print publication that the bi-monthly JPG has amassed an inventory of 500,000 images.

Writers get a hundred bucks, too. Tiffany is one of the 'word' editors, and she says she is encouraged to maintain the 'voice' of the writer, which I heartily approve.

Full story from the SF Chron here.

I have to say - besides the quality of paper, which is super fancy - the caliber of talent here is amazing. I've never worked with so many bright, talented, and creative people at one time. I can already feel myself getting better at what I do.
