Editorial Focus

The editors of Rock & Sling want to be surprised, more than anything. Surprised at the solidity of your work, the beauty of it, the tension in it, the argument of it, the freshness of it, the experiment of it. We live in a mysterious, challenging, fraught world, and we look for work that engages, challenges, or extends those realities. Work that puts us in peril.

Tips From the Editor

Engage difficulty.
Avoid adverbs.
Surprise us.
Risk failure.
Do not dwell in abstraction; engage the senses.
