Drag, Snag and Spag

Submissions for Drag, Snag & Spag Pure Slush Vol. 24 will open some time in May 2022.

Your Drag, Snag and Spag submission must be:

  • original, so previously unpublished online or in print (so that includes authors’ websites and blogs)
  • 150 word minimum limit for fiction and non-fiction, stories and essays / maximum 1000 words. (That’s for each story / essay: maximum number of prose pieces you can submit is 3.)
  • 80 word minimum limit for poetry / maximum 1000 words. (That’s for each poem: maximum number of poems you can submit is 5.)
  • must include something about a drag queen OR spaghetti OR a sausage* or sausages. Be extra clever and include two … or all three!

(*The inclusion of “snag” is a nod to Pure Slush’s Australian origins: “snag” is the uniquely Australian slang term for “sausage” – click here and scroll down to #2 – snag.)

You must be minimum 18 years of age to submit.
