Toward seven years and
running . . . Slope is an online journal devoted to poetry
being written around the world. We publish only new, original and previously
unpublished poems. Contributors hail from countries including Australia,
England, South Africa, Nigeria, France, Tunisia, Wales, Slovenia, Canada and

Slope occasionally features "sampler" issues. Recent examples include
our groundbreaking American Sign Language Poetry feature (Issue 19) and "OzErotica:
Australian Poets Write Love and Sex" (Issue 18); upcoming issues include a
New British Poetry feature.
