Support SAND

Since SAND’s founding in 2009, our journal has been run entirely on the passion of our all-volunteer team. Despite financial constraints, we have published and promoted literature and art that’s as diverse, experimental, and subversive as Berlin itself, the city we call home. On and off the page, we’ve focused on building community, increasing the diversity of voices that are heard, and taking risks with the form and content of what we print. This community and artistic freedom seems important in a world where independent ideas are not only beautiful and meaningful, but also increasingly necessary. 

We couldn’t continue to do any of this without the thousands of hours put in by our all-volunteer team or the support of readers, subscribers, and fans like you. We’d like to invite you to become an even closer part of it all with a Patreon donation that will help us continue to pay the hardworking writers and artists whose work we publish, many of whose incomes have taken a hit in 2020 and 2021. With your support, we can remain an international, independent, inclusive publication that pays creatives. It doesn’t matter whether you can give €1 a month or €20: your donation provides an all-important space for creativity and comes with perks like access to exclusive content, early access to issues of SAND, and more. Visit us at Patreon.com/sandjournal to donate or follow us today.

Constructed Poetry Contest

In line with SAND 22’s theme – deconstruction/reconstruction – we’re inviting you, our readers and friends, to construct a poem entirely from words you find around you. Dig for book titles, newspaper headlines, food labels, shopping lists, or anything else, and write a poem of max 22 words using your findings. 
 
Send us your “reconstructed” poems, and our favourite entry will win a prize of your choice from the SAND web shop. We’ll publish a selection of our favourite entries on our social media. Deadline: Wednesday 3rd March, 17:00 CET.
