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 are accepting submissions of poetry through February 28th. Flash, irregulars and fiction will be accepted through March 17th, 2013.


Our Submission Policies

Simultaneous Submissions and Previously Published Works

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.

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.

All work is the property of the artist.
