Sand Festival is a celebration of literature, poetry, music, art and anything you can bring to a Greek beach to share with all participants of the festival.
Every summer – since 2015 – we make an open call for submissions on a specific theme by writers, poets, musicians and all sorts of artists who would like to join us on a Greek island in order to create a spontaneous celebration of creativity!
The Festival has taken place in Gavdos, Koufonissia and Milos and each year happens on a different beach with camping facilities in order to offer participants the option of cheap accommodation. Participation is free and open to writers and all sorts of artists from anywhere in the world (for writers/poets, submitted texts must be in English).
The texts that are selected and read at the festival each year are published in an anthology by Strange Days Books, a publishing cooperative that also organises Sand Festival.
All you need to do is wait for the call for submissions, send your text or proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org and join us for some atmospheric readings and lots of other stuff by the Greek sea!
