There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Thank you for thinking of Slice for your poetry or prose. The current reading period is currently open and runs from April 1 - June 1. All submissions during that time will be considered for Issue 22. The theme for this issue is "Borders" and it will be released spring 2018.

We offer all contributors of Slice a monetary award for their work ($250 for stories and essays and $75 for poems).

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. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as you withdraw the work immediately if it is selected for publication elsewhere. All work should be previously unpublished. Please allow up to three months for us to reply to your submission.

We look forward to reading your work!
