To submit, click here. Please include the word APPOINTMENT, plus your name and the title of your submission, and the word count. (Please note: word counts do not include titles or your name.)
PLEASE NOTE: if you are submitting more than one poem, story or essay, we really prefer they are all included on one document. So if you have 5 poems or 3 stories to submit, please include them on one document, and thus make one submission, rather than 5 submissions (one for each poem) or 3 submissions (one for each story).
If you are new to Pure Slush, please include a brief bio or profile of yourself.
