I was browsing through The Platform Collective looking for collaborations when I stumbled upon a host of independent digital magazines all based here in Singapore. I looove magazines and couldn’t resist digressing from my original intent to look through each of them.
Most of them are really new, which is perhaps why I haven’t heard of them. (Or maybe I’m just lagging? Haha)
Anyway, here are seven that I bookmarked.
One of these may end up being the next Vulcan Post, The Smart Local, or City Nomads. Who knows?
1) Poached Mag
For arts, food, culture, reviews and opinion pieces. Basically, everything lifestyle.
For backpackers who want a local insider guide to Singapore and curious locals who want a deeper insight
For lifestyle features, entertainment news, and a say on local issues
For music and entertainment news
Originally known as The Native Music when it was launched in October 2013, this online magazine now also covers film, television, and the arts.
5) M.O.D.A Mag
For discovering emerging artists and designers in Asia
For the linguist in me that lived on after I graduated
Entirely run on a voluntary basis, this linguistics magazine aims to reach out to both linguists and non-linguists alike with their jargon-free writing.
7) Actually Mag
For fashion, people, and places
A literary extension of its namesake–a retail fashion outlet in Orchard, this magazine also serves as a Singapore city guide.
