Submit poetry or artwork/photography.

Acceptable file formats for poetry are: Microsoft Word .doc or .docx, Adobe Acrobat .pdf, Rich text format .rtf, or plain text format .txt.

Acceptable formats for artwork & photography are: .jpg, .png, .gif, and .tif. If sending more than one work, place inside a folder and compress into a .zip file before uploading.

We prefer contemporary urban themes—writing from the gut that is not afraid to bark or bite—and shy away from pastoral, religious, and rhyming verse.

If you're unsure, the editors strongly recommend that you sample a current or back issue of Slipstream.

Payment is in copies of the magazine in which your work appears.
