Slag Glass City publishes continuously from October through June.

We seek new, original, nonfiction literature and art from, by, and about cities, human experience in urban environments, urban sustainability, and what does and does not makes cities livable.

We are open to all interpretations for our mission. In 2020-2021 we are particularly interested in contemporary and historic accounts and impressions of pandemics, racial justice actions, and contentious elections.

We accept general submissions on a rolling basis, from October 15-June 15. 

We would love to consider:

—Lyric, essayistic, reportorial, narrative, and/or hybrid nonfiction  prose; between 500 and 5000 words is usual, but we will consider any  length if the work fits our mission;

 —Video and audio essays up to five minutes in length;

 —Photo essays (with or without prose) of up to 15 images. [Please email us if your media submission is too large for the submission manager];

—Other visual, digital, audio, or literary forms.
