In Good Company

Split Lip has just received a write-up over at, a showcase of literary "news, information, and guides to independent bookstores, independent publishers, literary magazines, alternative periodicals, independent record labels, alternative weeklies, and more" (I especially love New Page's lit mag database, and use it all the time).

In this mini-review, writer Kristen McIlvenna notes that "The writing at Split Lip pulls the reader in, immediately. All the pieces seem to have that attention-grabbing first line(s)", and presents some examples (one of which is from my poem, "The Breakdown Atlas". Yeah, cool!). She also writes, "I love it when I see young magazines succeed so quickly. Split Lip has a handful of excellent authors and well written and engaging pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry."

And they're in good company, along with Apeiron ReviewBent Ear ReviewGris-Gris, and ONandonscreen. So, kudos, Split Lip! Be sure to check out this up-and-comer: It's a great mag of top-quality literature, music, fine art, and film. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
