About

Based in Berlin, SAND is a nonprofit literary journal published by a team from the city’s international community. Featuring work by writers, translators, and artists from around the world, SAND seeks out fresh and underrepresented perspectives. SAND was founded in 2009 by Becky Crook. In the years since, our large, evolving team has published nearly two thousand pages of visual art and English-language fiction, nonfiction, and poetry (including translations) from over forty countries and territories. We have a particular interest in work by women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people from marginalized locations. Stories that first appeared in SAND have been included in three Best Small Fictions anthologies and were nominated for a Stack award. Contributing poets have been honored with the Hawker Prize for Southeast Asian Poetry, the Brunel International African Literature Prize, the Georg Büchner Prize, a New York Times Best Poetry of the Year listing, and the European Union Award for Literature. Our translators have received the US National Translation Award and been named the Literary Translator of the London Book Fair.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees for "tip jar" submissions.

Before Submitting

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.
