About Us

the Sligo Journal Logo

The Sligo Journal is an online, campus- and community-based arts and letters journal which features the work of the Montgomery College-Takoma Park / Silver Spring campus and the Takoma Park / Silver Spring community. The journal features original art, photography, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in English as well as in Arabic, French, and Spanish with the translation, when possible.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions are accepted year-round. There is no restriction on style, form, or content (other than work should be free of extremely objectionable content). The length for poetry and fiction is also open; however, short stories should not exceed 10 pages.

Submissions are accepted year-round. There is no restriction on style, form, or content (other than work should be free of extremely objectionable content). The length for poetry and fiction is also open; however, short stories should not exceed 10 pages.

Original work (fiction, nonfiction and poetry) may be in Arabic, English, French or Spanish (as these are the languages the English and Reading Department teaches on campus). If in a language other than English, a translation may also be included but it is not required.
Work can either be unpublished or published; however, the poet/writer/artist must still have rights to the work and be able to tell us where the work appeared so we credit the publication (name, date, issue).

All rights to any work in The Sligo Journal revert back to the owner after online and possibly print publication.
With regard to art/photos, the work needs to be at 300 dpi (color and/or black and white) - the size can always be reduced via software for our purposes.

Please send inquiries and work (in a Word or Rich Text Format document or inside the email) electronically to: Michael.LeBlanc@montgomerycollege.edu
