Mackerel is a culture magazine focused on social commentary, literary arts and travel.
We tell 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.
Mackerel was founded by Marc Nair (poet, producer and photographer) and Carolyn Oei (writer, editor and educator).
The Mackerel reader is a discerning global citizen who appreciates critical thought, sees beauty in spite of dysfunction and has a healthy respect for the environment.
Our content reaches out to an ever-growing global readership.
In addition to our website, we reach out to our audience through social media - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - as well as specially curated events.
