Publisher’s description: Sleet is an online literary magazine that publishes works of beauty, simplicity, clarity, and power. We search for that indefinable spark that defines a piece as memorable with heart. In every edition we showcase writers in all phases of careers, from first published pieces to the big name headliners. Sleet strives to be writer friendly.
Sleet prints fiction, poetry, irregulars, creative nonfiction and interviews. Representative authors include Mark Doty, Richard Jarrette, Jim Moore, Louis Jenkins, Ed Bok Lee and hundreds of others.
And while we are an animated bunch and don’t take ourselves too seriously, we at Sleet are deadly serious about the writing we choose to print.
Make it short; make it Sleet.
SLEET EATS!, our special winter supplement has arrived. This mini-edition of Sleet Magazine features restaurant reviews, as writers from across the globe provide us their special takes on food reporting. Travel the globe from Mexico to Norway to NY to exotic cafes and diners in small town Minnesota. Read beautiful new work from poet Jim Moore and get lost in Spoleto, Italy.
Sleet’s Fall/Winter 2013 newly minted edition has arrived! We offer an interview with Mark Doty and new work from his upcoming book, Deep Lane. Also included in this edition is new writing from Richard Jarrette, and a correspondence interview in cards and letters with poet Juliet Patterson. Our fiction and irregulars lineups are so strong, it is impossible to single out any one writer, but the ghost of Flannery O’Connor cannot be missed. And our new CNF category accidentally settles around the subject of body beautiful in a most unusual way.
Sleet’s Summer Supplement has arrived! Join us for a drink in the woods, not to mention photos and poetry by our Istanbul poet Jamie Buehner, short work by Jim Moore, summer cleaning tips by Liz Moore, and much much more.
