Sandlapper, The Magazine of South Carolina, P.O. Box 1108, Lexington, SC 29071 or 115 Maxie Road, Lexington, SC 29072. F(803)359-0629. Email aida@sandlapper.org. Website http://www.sandlapper.org. Aida Rogers, Managing Editor. 60% freelance. “Sandlapper is a quarterly magazine about South Carolina’s people, places, history and culture. We don’t run articles about controversial issues, unless they’re history-related. Editor Bob Wilkins likes to publish articles about things people can do and see in the state, so part of the magazine is like a field guide to keep in your car. We are famous for our beautiful color photography. We don’t run fiction or poetry. Sandlapper is published by Sandlapper Society, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) educational organization. Therefore, our “subscribers” are actually members of the society. Membership includes other benefits, like discounts on our cookbook and art poster, and discounts on attractions statewide.” Rarely works with new writers. Circ: 80K. Quarterly. Pays within one month of publication. Publishes ms 2 weeks to 1 year after acceptance. Buys first time rights in the magazine and in the on-line editions of Sandlapper. No reprints. Responds 1 - 2 months. Sample by mail with $.8.90 for postage, handling, and magazine. Subscription $25. Guidelines by email or mail with SASE.
CURRENT NEEDS: “We need more action stories: sports, adventure, with good photos. We need less self-indulgent nostalgia submissions.” Pays $100 per published page for articles of 500 - 3000 words. Submit complete ms or query and two clips of published work by mail with SASE to Aida Rogers, Managing Editor.
PHOTOS/ART: Accepts slides and prints. Pays $100 for full-page photos and covers; $50 for half-page and $25 for quarter-page.
HINTS: “Common mistakes include out-of-state writers assuming Sandlapper is just generically southern and not specifically South Carolinian. We are interested only in Palmetto State issues, not why southerners drink sweet tea and say y’all.” Another common problem is writers from out-of-state wanting to write about a famous vacation area here – Myrtle Beach, for instance. These writers have an out-of-state perspective, and it shows in their writing. This is hard to explain in words, but you can tell they don’t have the familiarity with the state that natives and residents have. We also like writers to do more than write. We want them to report – interview key people and quote them.”
