Sandpiper Review


Who We Are

Sandpiper Review is an annual publication staffed by undergraduates at Stony Brook University on Long Island, New York. We are seeking undergraduate writers and artists from coast to coast in our inaugural issue, which will launch in May 2022. Our general submission period runs from November 15th, 2021 - February 2nd, 2022. As a magazine, we value curiosity, diversity, and artistic integrity. Just as the sandpiper explores the beach with its scuttling legs and sharp beak, we are searching for treasures that excite and captivate us.

Submission Guidelines

Writers are encouraged to include a short bio of under 100 words. 


We accept multiple submissions, but please notify us if your work is placed elsewhere.


Please format written submissions with double spacing and Times New Roman font. Submissions can be sent through Duotrope or via email.



We accept short stories of up to 4,000 words. We are looking for stories that move us, intrigue us, and show us lines we wish we’d written ourselves. Are you experimental? Literary? However you define yourself, we’d love to see it. We aren’t looking for genre writing (horror, erotica, fanfiction,) but we aren’t opposed to original speculative fiction, either. 



Flash fiction, to us, is anything under 400 words. Writers can submit up to three flash fiction pieces at a time.



We accept up to three poems per submission. Please keep individual poems under two pages each. 



We accept creative nonfiction up to 4,000 words. Creative nonfiction can include any writing that prods at the world with a fresh, authentic perspective. This includes, but is not limited to: memoir, essay, or review of any recently released media.



If it’s 2D, we want to see it. Artists can submit up to three separate images per submission period. Please make sure to include appropriate credits (title, medium, dimensions, year) when submitting. It would be wise to ensure submissions are at least 300 dpi and in an accessible .jpg format.
