Mackerel is a culture magazine.
We tell contemporary stories of beauty, truth and hope, giving a deep-dive perspective on places, spaces and people.
Like the “maquerel" in Old French - a “go-between” - Mackerel is a broker of experience.
Mackerel was founded by Marc Nair (poet, producer and photographer) and Carolyn Oei (writer/producer/community builder).
We work across five broad topic categories:
BRAISED – Everything food and drink
COMMENT – Our Op-Ed
PORTRAIT – A personality profile
REVIEW – Anything from a play to a hotel stay
SKETCH – Commentary through artistic expression
The Mackerel reader is a discerning global citizen who desires adventure and soul in their life journey.
They seek a deeper awareness of the world around them even as they appreciate life for its vastness, bounty and diversity.
Our content reaches out to an ever-growing global readership, which is currently a monthly average of 10,000+ regular readers/followers.
In addition to our website, we reach out to our audience through social media - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - as well as specially curated events.
