Slippage Lit Magazine About Page

Slippage Lit is an international literary magazine devoted to publishing experimental and strange works of fiction, poetry and non-fiction.




Founded in Sarajevo in late 2018 by two Bosnians and one geographically-challenged Australian, Slippage Lit aims to publish writing that doesn’t get enough attention.

We are a small, independent literary magazine with a mission to publish the strangest, most daring and unorthodox, quality work we can find. We hope to give a voice to all those poems, stories, essays, and everything in between, that just don’t fit in anywhere else. Our ongoing goal is to give a platform for writing in a strange style, or an antiquated genre that just isn’t published anymore, or was never published at all.
Slippage Lit aims to foster an open and encouraging community of readers and writers who are looking for something a little bit different.

We publish 3 issues a year: March, July, and October!
