Kendall Dunkelberg

I am a poet, translator, and teacher from middle-America. Born and raised in Iowa, I now direct the low-residency MFA program at Mississippi University for Women, direct the Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium featuring Southern writers, and teach introductory creative writing through graduate workshops and literature classes. I've published three collections of poetry, one of translations of poetry (from Dutch), and the introductory creative writing textbook, A Writer's Craft: Multi-genre Creative Writing.

I'm interested in creative writing pedagogy, anti-racist writing workshops, digital literature, and all kinds of poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and drama. Though I've written and taught all forms, I consider myself primarily a poet. I am the editor of Poetry South and founded Ponder Review with our graduate students.

SAND is an international journal publishing risk-taking work from the diverse range of creatives making visual art, poetry, fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, and translations. We specifically look for work that subverts, work that pushes the boundaries of form, message, and voice in ways that we will feel, physically, in our bodies. We have long amplified underrepresented voices and encourage submissions from writers and artists who are women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, working class, international, and/or geographically underrepresented.

Submit early. Fiction and poetry close when the submissions cap is reached. To find out if your work is a fit for SAND, read back issues and visit our "submit" page at sandjournal.com.

Undead Goathead

Hello, my name is Cheryl,  and I'm a writer from Santa Fe, NM. In addition to maintaining my music blog, Undead Goathead, I also write editorials, poetry,  and fiction.  

I wrote my first book, tentatively titled The Black Moon of Lilith,  for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) 2020. It's an urban fantasy/supernatural horror story about a librarian's assistant who stumbles upon 
the Grim Reaper's cloak. If published,  this will be the first book of my Land of Entrapment series.

I look forward to networking with fellow readers and writers with similar interests.

I'm a late bloomer to dedicated writing. In July 2021 my first collection of poetry will be published. I tend to write pulling from my ancestors spirit's of trauma and marginalization. I often write about what haunts me.

Joanie HF Zosike

I'm a life-long writer and a life-long student. I am interested in working with other writers to improve my craft, support their craft/s, cross the borders, swim for the farthest shore.

Work Synopsis: I've published poems in several anthologies, zines and online sites, and have written chapbooks, The Character Poems (Chez Ches, no longer available) and "Bliss, Not Weight," the latter of which is published in Ides, an anthology of 15 chapbooks published by Silver Birch Press. I've also written seven plays, two of which have been produced either in Los Angeles or New York as full stage productions or in festival readings (You Told Me That the Carousel Was Crystal, Inside, ...and Then the Heavens Closed, Noah's Arc). I've also written, produced and performed four solo theatre works. I'm currently finalizing my newest play and a full-length poetry collection.

M Francis

I've translated extensively from classical Chinese poetry, the results of which a few dozens have been published in specialized and general literary journals.  I self-published a dual language book of 50 poems from the Tang major poet, Du Mu.  Have been keenly interested in formal verse both in translating and in writing original poetry.  Am trying to expand my range both in form and content, moving ever further from academic treatments.  Lately have experimented with original personal free verse and English haiku; also speculative fiction, genre poetry.  I value workshops for their multiple perspectives and challenges.

Hi! I'm the digital director at Poets & Writers. I enjoy writing poems, personal essays, and short stories. My essays have been published in Black Renaissance Noire, Midwestern Gothic, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and forthcoming in PANK. My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and my first short story was selected as an honorable mention for Glimmer Train's annual Family Matters contest. I'm currently at work on an essay collection. Always happy to meet new writer friends to discuss writing projects and goals.
