Curious about the “Enumclaw Living” magazine? Meet who is behind the new publication

Katie and Casey Morris wanted to start a magazine “by the residents, for the residents” of Enumclaw.

If you live in the more rural areas of Enumclaw, you may have opened your mail last September and found a copy of “Enumclaw Living,” a monthly publication put together by locals Katie and Casey Morris, among your bills and reminders to vote.

The couple moved from Montana to Bonney Lake in 2020 — they were looking to live somewhere rural-esque, but not too far from the “big city,” so it’s no wonder they fell in love with Enumclaw.

“It’s like where we grew up in Montana,” Casey said. “You’ve got the mountains and you’ve got the horses and the agriculture… that’s exactly what you see here.”

Katie, who used to publish a similar magazine back east, was looking to get back into the game after their child was born last year; as luck would have it, Best Version Media was searching for a publisher to manage an Enumclaw magazine at the same time.

Et violà — “Enumclaw Living” came to be, and the Morrisses just sent out the third edition to roughly 3,000 people late last month.

The magazine is “by the residents, for the residents,” Casey said, and they aim for their big story of the month to be about a local family; this month’s edition features jack-of-all-trades and outgoing Enumclaw City Councilmember Beau Chevassus, wife Liz, and kids Penny and Lucy.

Additional content includes columns by professionals, business features, artwork, pet profiles, recipes, and classifieds — all local, of course.

“We’re looking forward to non-profit updates… we want to highlight athletes, we want to highlight upcoming stars,” Casey said. “We want to highlight all of that… feel good stories from the community.”

“Enumclaw Living” just published its third edition this month.
