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!

“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…

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…
