About SAND

Since its founding in 2009, SAND has been run entirely on the passion of our all-volunteer team. Despite financial constraints, we've remained true to our values of publishing international work and work in translation, of amplifying underrepresented voices, and of publishing work that is as subversive and experimental as Berlin, the city we call home.

All of SAND’s income goes back into printing, distribution, and promotion of the journal. Recently, we were able to start paying our contributors semi-professional rates thanks to generous supporters like you and a one-off grant from the Berlin Senate. We’re committed to keep doing so, and this is where your membership will make the most difference: Your donation will help us pay a fair wage to the hardworking writers and artists we publish, many of whose incomes have taken a hit in 2020 and 2021.

We hope you'll join us for the ride as we embark upon another decade of creating an international, inclusive, indie journal of literature and art.

Join Us in Reaching Our Goals:

  • €580/month: This is subsistence level for producing two print issues per year. This would cover our most basic costs of printing, warehousing, and distribution.

  • €1000/month: With this income, we could pay a fair, semi-professional wage to the hardworking writers and artists whose work we print.

  • €2000/month: With this income, we could pay our hardworking all-volunteer staff a very small, but welcome wage of €450/issue, which breaks down to €75 per month.
