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 accepting applications for a number of roles! Check them out on our Volunteers page.
While everyone is welcome to apply, 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.
If you have questions about volunteer roles, please contact the publishing team at firstname.lastname@example.org
