The Last Slag

Thank you. Everyone. Our readers, our contributors, all those who supported us when we started back in 2016, confused and excited and desperate to carve out a small place in the world for ourselves. We’re still confused, excited, and more desperate than ever, but unfortunately our lives as editors, artists, and normal humans haven’t aligned to keep the magazine going.

I’ve know about this for a while – if you’ve been checking here, you know that for much of 2019, we were absent. We published in print, then moved to solely online, and then simply stopped.

Editing this magazine is one of the best things I’ve ever done, and as a thank you, and a final capstone, I came up with one final project: The Last Slag.

Our 2019 catalog, along with some of our favorite work from our archive, will be published later this year in one volume.

Once again, I want to thank everyone who has been with me on this journey – my fellow editors, the friends, family, and readers who supported us, and of course our fantastic submitters and contributors.

Always yours,

Carleton Whaley – Editor in Chief, The Slag Review 2016-2020
