Submit Your Writing and Artwork to SandScript Magazine

Submission Deadline: March 1, 2021

Calling all writers, poets, and artists!

Have you been working on a piece of prose, poetry, or visual art that you’d love to share with the Pima community? Submit your work to the 2021 issue of SandScript Magazine!

What is SandScript?

SandScript is Pima Community College’s art and literary magazine that is published annually at the end of Spring semester. All works of prose, poetry, and visual art that appear in SandScript are created by Pima students, and a student-run editorial team reviews and edits all submitted works.  

Submission FAQs

Hoping to submit a piece of writing or artwork? SandScript’s faculty advisor, Frankie Rollins, answered your FAQs to help you put your best submission forward. 

How will SandScript review my submission? 

The SandScript staff votes blind on all the pieces that come in. Any pieces that don’t get a majority vote go through a review process. The editorial staff wants the magazine to reflect Pima’s diversity and is excited to see submissions from students with different backgrounds. SandScript also gives out prizes for the best pieces of prose, poetry, and fiction, and those prizes are funded by the Pima Foundation. 

SandScript accepts all kinds of writing and artwork, and you don’t have to have taken a class in art or writing to submit a piece. If you’ve created something that you’d like an audience to see, please submit! 

Is there a special theme for the 2021 issue?

Just like 2020, 2021 has us living through the pandemic, spending more time online, and experiencing big political changes. While there is no official theme for the 2021 issue, the editorial team is excited to see what you have produced during quarantine. 

How can I get a copy of the issue when it comes out? 

The 2021 issue will be available digitally on the SandScript website.

How can I get more involved with SandScript? 

You can join SandScript’s editorial team next spring semester by signing up for WRT 162 Literary Magazine Work! Being a part of SandScript is a great opportunity for you to become a part of the larger arts community and learn how to review and edit creative writing and artwork. As a member of the SandScript team, you will also learn how to work with people across campus and from diverse cultural backgrounds to design and publish the magazine. 

If you’re interested in working for SandScript or want to learn more, contact faculty advisor Elizabeth "Frankie" Rollins at (520) 206-3273 for more information.
