Welcome to The (New) Slam

Brilliant creative writer people! Dedicated Slammers! First-time visitors! Welcome to The Brand New (by which we mean: very, very similar) Slam. 

What's different? 

The Slam is transitioning from a closely curated forum where only select submissions are published to a more immediate, open and lively forum, where we welcome finished works as well as works in progress. With that model comes: 

- Daily content updates: Monday-Friday, daily updates of poetry, prose, and critiques from YOU, going live at the Slam
- Brilliant feedback from Cicada associate editor Anna (hi!) 
- Fame and, well, fame, for top Slammables: Editor’s Picks announced every month on the 15th at The Slam and posted at Cicada’s tumblr, CicadaMagazine.tumblr.com

What's the same? 

- Same incredible Slammables
- Same stellar community of thoughtful fellow writers, offering insightful feedback and warm support 

Thanks for joining us at The Slam. We can't wait to see what you create here! 

Yours truly, 

The Slam Admins
