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 are looking for writing and art that subverts, work that pushes against the boundaries of form, message, and voice in ways that we will feel, physically, in our bodies. We want work that haunts us with its soul, edge, and truth. Show us that fresh can be slow, sensitive can be rough, bold can be quiet. 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.
