SAND Journal is Accepting Submissions

Berlin-based, English-language journal SAND is inviting submissions for its next issue from writers around the world.

Published twice a year, SAND features new fiction, nonfiction, poetry and art. The magazine was founded in 2009 by Becky Crook and currently features a large, international editorial team. It has featured the work of creators from over 40 countries and territories.

SAND seeks submissions that “push the boundaries of form, message, and genre in exciting and unpredictable ways—work that’s haunting for its soul, edge, and truth. It encourages submissions from writers and artists from a range of perspectives to submit, including people who identify as women, LGBTQ+, people of colour, differently-abled, low income, and/or geographically underrepresented.

Like most literary magazines, SAND attracts hundreds of submissions each year. Fiction Editor Ashley Moore has a number of tips for making sure your work stands out from the crowd.

Types of Accepted Submissions

Previously unpublished short stories, poetry, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, translations, photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, video stills, and other forms of visual art. All rights to your work revert to you after publication.

Word limits

5000 words for prose and up to five pages for poetry.
