home  • archives  • submissions  • us


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.


Sleet is now closed for submissions.

We are closing early to prepare for our AWP offsite reading on Thursday, April 9th, from 7:00–9:00 pm. Sleet at the Icehouse. Special guests will include GE Patterson, Deborah Keenan, and Richard Jarette.

Starting at 5:00 pm, Lewis Mundt presents New Sh!t Show @ AWP 2015


Our Submission Policies

We will accept up to 3 flash, 1 short story or CNF piece, or a small handful of irregulars*.

Simultaneous Submissions and Previously Published Works

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. We do not regard work on a blog or personal website as previously published.

* I R R E G U L A R S

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.

Creative Non-fiction

Sleet is now accepting creative nonfiction submissions, as Lee Gutkind once put it, with both power and panache — gripping stories derived from the actual. Because the genre can borrow from poetry and fiction, essay and memoir, we at Sleet refuse to place it within brackets. Simply put, we welcome anything that will make the hairs on the back of our neck stand up.
