The Missing Slate publishes biannually with themed submissions opening in October through December for our February issue and April through June for our August issue.
We are especially keen to feature emerging voices and focus on publishing work from women and marginalized voices only. There are a large number of publications that cater to cis-men, so if you fall within that bracket, we encourage you to submit to them.
We want work that grabs our attention, that haunts us, that creeps into our psyches, and stays with us. We want work that speaks to us, not because it's about us or people like us, but because it has a voice, an ache to be heard and seen.
We want an experience that takes us out of our presents and roots us in new worlds, and hope for work that is vulnerable, with them pretty words, and that ultimately, tells a good story, in whatever medium.
Check out the do's and don't of submissions below.
