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.
