Slice Magazine is open to submissions from now through August 1 for short stories of up to 5,000 words that explore the theme “Escape.” “We’re looking for anyone with a fresh voice and a compelling story to share—basically any work that really knocks our socks off. We’re not drawn to experimental or heavy-handed genre fiction. The best way to get a sense of Slice‘s content is to read the magazine.” Slice pays $100 for published stories.
