Publisher’s description: Sleet is an online literary magazine that publishes works of beauty, simplicity, clarity, power. We search for that indefinable spark that defines a piece as memorable, and we showcase writers in all phases of their careers. Sleet strives to be writer friendly.
Sleet prints fiction, poetry, irregulars, and interviews. Our Fall 2011 issue features new work by and interviews with Rain Taxi Editor Eric Lorberer, poet Jim Lenfestey, and the indescribable erasure book author Larry Sutin. We shine a light on our Pushcart nominees, including Richard Jarrette and Kristen Gipson. And we introduce our beautiful newcomer Sarah Jordan Stout.
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. Our 2013 January supplement will show new works by Sleet Poet Laureate Jamie Buehner, and an interview with Stuart Loughridge, whose gorgeous paintings will make you weep.
Make it short; make it Sleet.

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.
Sleet Magazine’s Spring Edition is now online, and it’s scary. We interview Werewolf anthologist Shannon Scott, stunning full moon photos by Ryan Rodgers, a conversation with poet Ralph Angel, and poetic treasures too numerous to mention. We feature a piece by a 16-year-old who fears the aging human. This edition is darkly beautiful and honest, a clear reflection of the work we receive.
