PUBLISHED TWO TIMES PER YEAR, SAD MAG IS THE ONLY MAGAZINE DEDICATED TO COVERING VANCOUVER’S INDEPENDENT ARTS AND CULTURE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF LOCAL, EMERGING WRITERS AND ARTISTS.
Our mandate is to advance artistic accomplishment via promotion of literacy, writing, art, and public discourse among emerging creatives in Vancouver. We seek to create a venue for writers, photographers, and illustrators as well as make-up artists, fashion stylists, performers, designers, and communications professionals to showcase their work.
The SAD Magazine Publishing Society is a registered non-profit and completely volunteer-run. We print locally with MET Fine Printers, a carbon-neutral company.

VOLUNTEERING AND INTERNSHIPS
SAD Mag is currently not accepting applications for editorial, design, or art volunteers or interns. While we are flattered by the interest, as a small team, we do not have the resources to supervise or train interns.
When positions are open, we strongly prefer to recruit individuals who are already very familiar with the magazine—so if you hope to get involved on the editorial or design teams, the best method is to contribute to an upcoming issue and let us get to know you.
ADVERTISING & Distribution
We reach more than 10,000 creative professionals interested in art and culture each year through our print publication and event programming. We have prominent community partnerships with organizations including Rain City Chronicles, PechaKucha, Vancouver Art/Book Fair, and more.
