SAND 23 Launch

After a year of digital pandemic launches, we were finally able to gather our Berlin family together for a real, live, in-person launch on 5 Nov 2021 at Prachtwerk in Berlin.

We enjoyed readings and presentations from creative nonfiction writer Nikitta Adjirakor, poet Winifred Wong, fiction writer Gurmeet Singh, artist Tabitha Swanson, and poet/flash fiction writer Lizzy Yarwood. Their work can be found in the latest issues of SAND.

We were excited to see some of our favorite SAND team alums and past contributors in the audience along with other known and new faces. This was extra special on a night when SAND announced an exciting transition: Outgoing Editor in Chief, Jake Schneider, handed over the reins to our new Editor in Chief, Ashley Moore.

Thank you to those of you who made it and who support us through reading, submitting, and being part of our creative community. We hope you enjoy the photos of the night below. All photography by Marlon Schipper.
