Sonder Magazine is all about bringing different perspectives together. Everyone is wildly and magically different, yet there is still a universality that draws us all together. We are about reflecting those differences and, ultimately, what it is that brings us together.

We accept short stories, poetry, flash fiction, creative nonfiction and artwork for the cover.
