Skink Beat Review is a an online literary journal dedicated to publishing fringe work. Hybrid and experimental work is a must. We love when artists include original art.

Skink Beat Review publishes for Winter (Dec 25), Spring (Apr 25), Pride (June 25), and Horror (Oct 25). Special issues when warranted.

Skink Beat Review is defiantly and cheerfully in opposition to the oppression of women, bipoc, and lqbtq+ persons currently under attack in America. We dissent.
