Slippage Lit Magazine Submissions Page

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

 

Submissions

 

 
 

As writers and fans of literature, we realise that every writer has a work or two that they know is of high quality, but is also a little out there (more than literary magazine content usually is) or not in the style of the time.

That’s the stuff we want you to submit to us!

At Slippage Lit we don’t want our contributors to feel restricted by form or genre, as such we don’t distinguish submissions by genre. We want your writing that slips between poetry and fiction, weaves together more than one genre. Have you written a memoir in verse? Fantastic, we want it! Have you written a science-fiction sonnet? Awesome, send it our way! Have you written a Horror Comedy that will have us in hysterics? That sounds like something we would like! Is what you’ve written like none of these examples, and like nothing else out there? Submit it to us!

Submissions are currently open for issue 2
