Sand Hills Literary Magazine
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Our reading period is currently open until February 15, 2017.
Since 1973, Sand Hills has been committed to publishing the highest quality of student creative writing and visual art—including work by award-winning authors Louise Shivers and Judith Ortiz Cofer. More recently, our contributors have also published in The Oxford American, Seventeen, and Playboy. Named for a 19th century rural Augusta suburb, where the Summerville campus of Augusta University now stands, Sand Hills has a tradition of honoring and preserving history and place through art, as well as to breaking new ground. As Blaney Prigden wrote in his preface to the first issue, “our title [. . .] alludes to a place of transition between related areas.”
Genre-specific submission guidelines and forms are available below. Failure to adhere to the guidelines may result in disqualification.
All submissions are read blind by the Sand Hills staff (students enrolled in Literary Editing and Publishing). A $200 prize, selected by outside judges, will be awarded in each of the following categories: poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and visual artwork.
