Future Graphic by Rhea Lonsdale

The next issue of SAD sheds the worn-out coat of the past and looks to the future. 

Send us pitches for your best essays, articles, poems, stories, and artwork on that evasive time which holds so much promise and invokes so much anxiety. Think future generations; environmental liminality; new structures for old systems; the future is _____; and all those shiny hopeful things which glimmer on the horizon. As always, we encourage you to interpret the theme creatively. Please send your submissions by August 31, 2019.

Underrepresented writers—including but not exclusive to trans, Two Spirit, and non-binary folks who are Black, Indigenous, people of colour, queer, and/or identify as having a disability—are particularly encouraged to submit. 

Part of SAD Mag’s mandate is also to provide a platform to new and emerging writers and artists. We are happy to work with you if you’re new to the scene. If you have any questions about submitting, shoot an email to one of our friendly volunteer staff members.

See you in the future!
