About

Founded in 2009, SAND is based in Berlin and attracts short stories, poetry, creative nonfiction, translations, flash fiction, and artwork from all over the world. We publish work that is fresh, well written, accessible, and diverse, as we take pride in producing a beautiful journal that can be enjoyed by a wide audience. We’re particularly interested in writing from perspectives that are generally underserved in literature, including work by women, people of color, people from the LGBTQ community, and people from the wider international writing community. SAND also fosters the independent literary and art scene in Berlin by promoting both local and international writers and artists that help solidify Berlin’s position as a world city. We collaborate with musicians, literary festivals, and artist cooperatives to hold regular events and workshops in the city, thereby aiming to bring diverse communities with similar interests closer together as well as enhance Berlin’s literary community. Through this sense of community and our presence in the international literary scene, we aim to encourage dialogue and, most importantly, create excitement around quality literature and artwork.

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
