About Us

Sleet hails from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. We love language and the written word, and we welcome both the beautiful and anti-beautiful.

Susan Solomon


susan solomon

In another life, Susan cleaned funeral homes and vacuumed around the dead. An unspoken element of respect existed within that job. The intimate invitation into people's lives is never taken lightly. Susan's work has appeared in The SUN Magazine, Todd Boss' Flurry, Simply Haiku, elimae, .Cent Magazine, Off Channel, Rain Taxi Review of Books, and Saint Paul Almanac. Her collaboration Dessert Poems, with Sleet Poet Laureate Jamie Buehner, was recently released by Binge Press; and the upcoming edition of Hamline University's Water~Stone Review will include Susan's interview with the brilliant poet Ralph Angel.

The Sleet Team – your work is safe with us.
