Out of Place: Launching SAND 19

We’ll be launching our new issue, SAND 19, on 24 May 2019. Come and celebrate with us!

From Istanbul to Greenland, Nigeria, and the Caribbean, the prose, poetry, and art of SAND 19 resound with dissonance, disconnection, and things not quite where they should be…

Join us at ACUD MACHT NEU to toast the new issue with a night of our signature micro-readings and music until late.

Exclusive live readings from SAND 19 contributing writers:
