From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mademoiselle was an influential women's magazine first published in 1935 by Street and Smith[1] and later acquired by Condé Nast Publications.

Mademoiselle was known for publishing short stories by noted authors such as Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates, William Faulkner, Tennessee Williams, James Baldwin, Flannery O'Connor, Paul Bowles, Jane Bowles , Jane Smiley, Mary Gordon, Paul Theroux, Sue Miller, Barbara Kingsolver, Perri Klass, Mona Simpson, Alice Munro,[2] Harold Brodkey, Pam Houston, Jean Stafford and Susan Minot. Julia Cameron was a frequent columnist.[3] The art director was Barbara Kruger.[4]

In 1952, Sylvia Plath's short story Sunday at the Mintons won first prize and $500, as well as publication in the magazine. Her experiences during the summer of 1953 as a guest editor at Mademoiselle provided the basis for her novel, The Bell Jar.[5]

The November 2001 magazine was the final issue. Some of the 93 employees and features moved over to Glamour, also published by Condé Nast. Spokeswoman Maurie Perl explained the reason was due to the worsening economic climate for magazines after the 9/11 attacks.[6]
