Sand Hills, Augusta University's premiere literary magazine, is committed to publishing the highest quality of creative writing and visual art in print every Spring. Housed in the heart of the American south, Sand Hills has been keeping the written word and independent voices alive since 1973.

Sand Hills brings together new and established voices from diverse backgrounds. We are looking for works that celebrate different perspectives, we want writers to submit their truths, their fictions — to share their humanity.

General Guidelines: We seek to publish the best drama, poetry, prose (creative nonfiction and fiction), and visual art created by individuals currently residing in the U.S. All general submissions are read blind by the Sand Hills staff.

National and Student Prize Contests: Please see the specific contest guidelines below and on our website. Our national contest is judged by eminent contemporary writers, and our student contest is judged by the staff. 

While we do accept simultaneous submissions, we do not accept previously published work (including self-published material in print or online). If your work is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw your work from Sand Hills as soon as possible.

Genre-specific submission guidelines are available below. Failure to adhere to the guidelines may result in disqualification.
