The Missing Slate Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Submissions across all categories are currently closed. Bookmark this page to know when they re-open.


We take submissions in three categories: visual art, literature (poetry and fiction), narrative nonfiction (social commentary, investigative journalism, memoir, etc.). Submissions are open throughout the year, but each category has its separate email address and submissions guidelines, which we ask you to respect. 

As a final word, we respect the time and talent of those who submit to us and who expect a timely response, but we ask for a minimum of three and a maximum of six weeks to get back to you. Rest assured, we have received your submissions and will get back to you as soon as we can either way.

All rights revert to the author upon publication. Should your work be republished elsewhere, either online or in print, we would be very grateful if you credit The Missing Slate.

Please note: we currently cannot afford to pay contributors. We hope this will change in the future, but for now, it is simply not feasible for us.
