What's Up Port Alberni?

What's Up Port Alberni Magnize Cover Spring 2018 Marigold Productions Anne Pley

Marigold Productions Publishing Company has been creating the magazine called What’s Up Port Alberni? since the first issue was introduced in the fall of 2015. The magazine is a quarterly production and is made for the entertainment of the people of Port Alberni. It is not a tourist magazine although oddly enough, it has gone all around the world. The magazine is written and printed in Port Alberni.

What’s Up Port Alberni? is a free magazine but it may be subscribed to in order to facilitate home delivery. Subscribers also have their names entered into prize draws with each issue.

Advertisers receive the best presentation of their ads in terms of clarity and colour from Marigold Productions Publishing Company than they would from any other local publication. As well, the magazine purchases goods from its advertisers to give away in the draws. This is a unique concept that will not be found in other venues.

Marigold Productions Publishing Company is interested in submissions of articles and/or stories from writers and will consider ideas for articles and stories put forward by readers of the magazine.

Copies of the What’s Up Port Alberni? magazine may be picked up at the advertisers. However, if the advertisers run out, then copies are available at our office for pickup. Phone, email or just drop in.
