“Beautiful, compelling, irresistible: Slice will knock you right out. In the best way possible.” --Junot Díaz
Slice, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit print magazine, was launched in 2007 by book editors Maria Gagliano and Celia Johnson and has since garnered rave reviews from some of today’s leading authors, editors, and agents. Pulitzer prize-winning author Junot Diaz praises, “Beautiful, compelling, irresistible: Slice will knock you right out. In the best way possible.” At the core, Slice aims to bridge the gap between emerging and established authors by offering a space where both are published side-by-side. In each issue, a specific cultural theme becomes the catalyst for articles and interviews from renowned writers and lesser known voices alike. Along with these pieces, we publish fiction and poetry that isn’t bound by the theme—we simply look for works by writers who promise to become tomorrow’s literary legends.
Slice has had tremendous success, with a steadily growing circulation, from the local literary community to readers worldwide. The magazine is published twice each year, in March and September. We have published interviews with bestselling and prize-winning authors including Salman Rushdie, Elizabeth Strout, Kathryn Stockett, Tana French, Lisa See, Paul Auster, Jonathan Lethem, and A. J. Jacobs, among many others. The magazine is run by two book editors at major publishing houses (Penguin and the Hachette Book Group), along with a team of publishing professionals. Many of our first-time authors have connected with agents and then landed book deals as a result of being published in the magazine.
