Please use our submission manager: Submit to Sliver of Stone

If you are a visual artist and would like to have your work considered by Sliver of Stone, please send us a letter of introduction (pasted into the body of an email). Include the artist’s name, full address, phone and email, along with a short biography written in third person.

    Are you both an online and in print magazine?

    • Margie Skelly says:

      I am really confused. I tried to submit online but could not find any place where I was required to send an attachment. I went to Submissions Manager and could not proceed past the guidelines for all all genres. Are poets supposed to send their poems to the same email address that people send their art work to? Please advise, Margie Skelly

      • Hi Margie,
        On the Submissions Manager page, click on “Submit.” It might look like the page hasn’t changed but if you scroll down, you’ll see the different fields: Title, Cover Letter, Submission Content. We do not accept attachments for poetry. You’ll need to cut and paste. Thanks for submitting!

    • Hi Margie,
      We’re only online.

  2. Do you accept short plays?

  3. Sarah Parker says:

    Do you accept submissions from UK residents?

  4. Are you looking for flash fiction??

  5. I understand that for prose, one should wait to hear from you before submitting another piece of prose, but can one author submit in two genres simultaneously i.e one essay and one batch of 3 poems…is that allowed?

  6. Bryce Journey says:

    Suggestion: For poetry submissions, let writers upload files like the other genres. The cut and paste window doesn’t always keep the original formatting of a poem.

  7. Can you tell me when your next submission dates will be?

  8. Karen Zey says:

    Today, March 19, 2014, your submission guidelines indicate that January 15, 2014 was the deadline for submissions for Issue 8. Are submissions for fiction, non-fiction and essays now closed until October 2014?

  9. tamar gribetz says:

    Is there a maximum word number for short stories, or just essays?

  10. Hello. I just clicked on your “submit” and was sent to an empty page. Please let me know when your site is setup to receive submissions.
