SAND is an English literary journal printed bi-annually in Berlin, which features prose and poetry as well as translations, art, and photography. We seek to offer a printed space for art and literature in Berlin’s international community and beyond, as well as a physical point of reference for writers and artists in Berlin through our events and community engagements.
SAND fosters the independent literary and art scene in Berlin by promoting local and international writers and artists that help solidify Berlin’s position as a world city. Our focus is on English-language literature as well as bringing English-language translations of world literature to a broader audience.
We collaborate with musicians, literary festivals, and artist cooperatives to hold regular events and/or workshops in the city, thereby aiming to bring disparate communities with similar interests closer together as well as enhance Berlin’s literary community in general, and English-speaking literary community in particular.
