Volume 2 Number 1 • Spring 2010


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 send us work only once per submission period.

Somewhat 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 work that is between 1 line and 500 words. It may be comprised of a single piece or a combination 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.

We are now accepting fiction and irregular submissions, from June 1st through June 15th, for Sleet's Summer Splash Supplement. All work chosen will debut in mid-July.

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