Thanks to everyone who came to hear four SAND authors reading and performing at Cafe Gaudy on October 7th! Claudia Bierschenk and Danielle Janess presented their original poetry, James Harris read his four line poems and an excerpt from a story that he has written in German, and Paula Varjack laid down a beat with her spoken word performances.
This week, we are holding another reading in cooperation with the Language Boat Party on the Eastern Comfort near Jannowitzbrücke. On Wednesday, October 20 starting at 7:30 p.m., poets Robert Grant (UK), Linden Horvath (US) and Tom Bresemann (Germany) will perform at the boat party, followed by live music and an all-around good time. We hope to see you there.
There are several changes upcoming at SAND. For one, co-founder and editor Jason Andrews is moving back to London. We are grateful for all the work and creativity that he has put into founding SAND. Other enthusiastic people have joined the team, each working on various projects and aspects of the journal's production. We even have a possible radio-show in the works! We're collaborating with Etsy Berlin to use their workspace for our meetings and we are looking for funding partners.The youth magazine "moxie" will also work in cooperation with SAND to hold collective events and have possible special issues together. SAND journal is also now available for purchase online, so if you live outside of Berlin and can't always make it to the events, now you can still get a copy easily!

Issue 3 on the theme of "Kiez" is underway and we are currently collecting submissions in art, photography, prose, poetry and translations until January 15. See our submissions page for more information: www.sandjournal.com/submissions
We hope to see you around! Thank you for your support!
The SAND team
