Contribution Guide
Slope Trash Magazine

Slope Trash Magazine’s future expansion and development will be driven by contributions from on-the-edge slope soaring fanatics (homo slopiens), and we look forward to presenting the writing and photography of as many contributors as we can.

STM is not for kit reviews or promotion of any specific maker's products. Rather, it's a place for stories and images that express the spirit, irreverence and boldness of extreme R/C slope soaring in both humorous and solemn terms. Our aim is to publish the highest quality text and images, so send your best work.

If you’ like to contribute words or images, request the “STM Guidelines for Writers and Photographers” from the publisher: Roy G. Biv or view the guide online.

Slope Trash Magazine incorporates a Content Management System that allows authors to post stories directly from their browser. If you would like to know more about how you can post to Slope Trash Magazine anywhere you have access to a computer and an Internet connection, please contact me at greg@slopeflyer.com and I will fill you in.

Further, not all Slope Trash Wheels can be selected to serve only their primary purpose - to get you and your planes to the slope. Often the vehicle must support two or more roles.
