Poetic Vision, a three-part series

Poets spend hours scrutinizing words on the page. In April and May 2021, SAND’s three-part virtual event series “Poetic Vision” will turn our gaze outward through a poem’s lens. How do poets view visual art, science, and film? How can we creatively channel other media in a text that speaks for itself?
 

The series kicks off on 25 April with a live webinar featuring four guest poets with varied vantage points spanning visual art, the sciences, and film, who will each offer a writing prompt related to their discussion. In a guided, collaborative follow-up workshop two weeks later facilitated by our poetry editor Crista Siglin, poets who tried the prompts will share, discuss, and hone their pieces. Finally, everyone is invited to share their resulting poems in a reading on our YouTube channel on 23 May in collaboration with Singapore’s Sing Lit Station.

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.
