Other Interesting Things

Mackerel is a magazine that tells contemporary stories of beauty, truth and hope through essays, photographs, podcasts and videos.

Like the “maquerel” in Old French – a “go-between” – Mackerel is a broker of experience.

Content is organised into the following categories:

  • The Big Picture – social commentaries and reviews
  • Portrait – profiles of interesting people doing interesting things
  • Mack Books – reviews of books by emerging and established writers from Singapore and Southeast Asia
  • Podcast – conversations with people from around the world and how they make meaning in this world
  • Light & Sound – our multi-media offerings including videos
  • Notes From Elsewhere – travel stories

Mackerel was launched on 26 February 2015.
