SAND is now open for submissions for our 22nd issue until 1 September. Thanks to the fantastic response to our call, we have now reached our cap on fiction and flash fiction submissions, but we are still open for poetry (including translations) and visual art.

We’re 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.
