SUBMITTING TO SLICE
SLICE magazine welcomes submissions for short fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. We’re looking for anyone with a fresh voice and a compelling story to share, and we are particularly enthusiastic about championing emerging voices. The best way to get a sense of SLICE’s content is to read the magazine. You can subscribe here. We offer all contributors of SLICE a monetary award for their work ($400 for stories and essays, $150 for flash fiction pieces, and $100 for poems).
At the core, SLICE aims to bridge the gap between emerging and established authors by offering a space where both are published side-by-side. In each issue, a specific cultural theme becomes the catalyst for articles, interviews, stories, and poetry from renowned writers and lesser known voices alike.
SLICE is committed to embracing diversity, inclusion, and equity. We do not publish work that promotes racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, or any form of prejudice against any group of people.
Our reading period is currently open and runs from October 1 – December 1, 2020. We will be considering work for Issue 27: Levity, which will be released fall 2021.
We look for work that plays off the theme, particularly in unexpected ways.
NOTE: THE SUBMITTABLE LINK IS DOWN TODAY (11/30), BUT IT WILL BE ACTIVE AGAIN TOMORROW MORNING (12/1). IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES SUBMITTING TOMORROW, YOU CAN REACH US DIRECTLY AT EDITORS@SLICEMAGAZINE.ORG. WE LOOK FORWARD TO READING YOUR WORK!
Please note, we are unable to accept any submissions sent to us via email or post. The maximum word count for submissions is 5,000 words. You may submit up to: 5 poems, 2 stories, 5 flash fiction pieces, and 2 essays. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as we’re notified immediately if the work is selected for publication elsewhere. All work should be previously unpublished. Please allow up to four months after the end of the reading period for us to reply to your submission.
