Our Multimedia Contest will reopen in the summer, and we continue to read online-exclusive content on a rolling basis, year-round. 

Submissions have closed for our spring print issue, will reopen in the winter.


We consider work for our online-exclusive web content on a rolling basis year-round, to be featured in our online edition of Slippery Elm.  Send us the kind of work that can't get the attention it deserves in a print format: longer prose pieces, photo-essays or stories or poems with visual accompaniment, videopoems, and multimedia or hypertext narratives are all great.

And while submissions in this category are free, if you're sending us some great multimedia work, why not consider our contest, open every summer?
