Volume 3 Number 1 • Spring 2011


Sleet seeks the unexpected. Make us laugh, cry, think. Our crew possesses a wide variety of tastes and styles, from classic to center to edge, but it is craft and passion that drive us. We will accept up to 4 poems, 3 flash, or 1 short story. Please include page numbers in works of fiction.

Please send us work only once per submission period.


An irregular is a genre-crossing bit of writing — something that overflows borders or maybe never had any. It could be an impression, a vignette, a 1-line flash. A general rule of thumb: If you don't know where to send it, send it here. An irregular should not stray over 500 words. It may be comprised of a single piece or a constellation of work.

In our current time, with media screaming from all directions, it is more difficult than ever to be heard. Sleet, wholeheartedly and without reservation, encourages simultaneous submissions. If a piece appears with us first, we do ask that Sleet be credited as its primary place of publication. In addition, we will consider showing previously published work as long as it is identified as such. Sleet sees no reason to restrict a work’s appearance in coexisting venues; great writing welcomed here.

Sleet will be open for submissions again in the fall of 2011.

Please send work as a single Microsoft Word (.doc) or Open Document Text (.odt) attachment and include a short bio.
