PUB­LISHED TWO TIMES PER YEAR, SAD MAG IS an independent 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 graphic designers, musicians, performers, typographers, multimedia artists, and others to showcase their work.

SAD Mag aspires to the values of inclusivity and diversity. We are dedicated to proactively seeking out and publishing underrepresented voices, including queer folks, people of colour, Indigenous peoples, and contributors of all ages. We welcome contributions from emerging writers and artists, regardless of formal training or previous experience.

SAD Mag is published on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples.

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

Check out any available positions 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 hello@sadmag.ca
