We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Magazine this year, and the answer is yes, Volume 6 is still coming out. The release date will be December 31st to keep it consistent with our annual concept. For those who have not sent in their content, the Submission Deadline for Volume 6 is December 21st.
We have had a lot of complaints about our process, but its supposed to make everything more fun, not more stressful. The current state of the print industry is in a tough place these days. Publication are doing what ever they can to stay alive in a new world. But in the pursuit of survival it feels to us like more and more publications are becoming too random in their content.
Magazines used to be about something. Each issue used to be a mini chapter in an on-going series with a point, wether it was superficial or political, religious or commercial, at least it had a theme or story of some kind. SMN still has a long way to go, but we have our little Canadian Entertainment/Culture concept that suits us and our loyal fans. We are still small and pretty indie, so of course our concept will grow and change but we’d like to see it evolve with purpose….if possible….any way….rules are rules….suck it up.
