Closed for Summer Break—Extended!

UPDATE: We are extending our summer break by one month. We just sent out our final batch of submission responses, which means my staff got no break at all. So I am giving them the next month off from reading slush. We will reopen on September 1. I appreciate your understanding. Thanks!

Shock Totem Publications has locked the doors and barred the windows. It’s vacation time! We will reopen for submissions on August 1. If you have a story with us now, expect a response soon.


“No more slush. NO MORE SLUSH!”

Until then…

Closed for Winter Break

Shock Totem Publications has locked the doors and barred the windows. It’s vacation time! Well, sort of; we still have nearly 400 submissions to read.

We will reopen for submissions on February 1, 2014. If you have a story with us now, expect a response soon.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. Stay safe and keep writing. Until then…

Caption altered (to the greatest opening line we’ve ever received). Original cartoon by Christopher Weyant.

August will mark our fifth anniversary, issue #7 is on deck, we’ve got issue #8 all sealed up and ready to go, so I’m giving my staff a well-deserved extra month off. We will reopen for submissions on September 1 instead of August 1.

If you have a story with us now, expect a response soon.

Until then…

Holiday Break

On December 1, we will close for our holiday break. We’ll still be around, posting content, but we will not be open for submissions.

So if you’ve been meaning to send something in, do so now. Otherwise wait until we reopen on February 1.

The Road to Five…

…begins now. We’re once again open for submissions. Issue #5 is a blank slate; we have nothing for it yet. So send us something great. Tell your (writer) friends!
