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.

New Category:

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 one-line flash. An irregular must be able to stand on its own. We are still in the process of defining this little mutant, but for now the guidelines are minimal. Send us literary-only work that is between 1 line and 500 words. It may be comprised of a single piece or a combination of work.

In this new century, 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 that work’s appearance in coexisting venues; great writing welcomed here.

We will be open for submissions January 31, 2010.

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