SLUSH PILE MAGAZINE was created in 2009 as a consequence of founding editor M.R. Branwen's fascination with the eponymous stacks of unsolicited fiction cluttering the bookshelves, baskets, and desktops of Harvard Review, where she was working (indeed, where she still works) as a senior reader.
Thus, the name of the magazine is both literal and ironic: literal, because most of our authors were found in some slush pile or other. Ironic because, although the term "slush pile" is bandied around the literary world as a synonym for "throw-backs" everything we publish is choice.
Let this magazine be one small testament to the fact that the slush pile is not just a dead end.
