A literary place for the fringe.

Skink Beat Review is a an online literary journal dedicated to publishing fringe work.

No mainstream literary work here, Natalie and Nikki are looking for the weird, the unfamiliar, and the piece that makes you go “oh.”

Hybrid and experimental work is a must. Try to include some art, a photo…make it count.

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

Submissions accepted year-round; please view the submissions page.

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.
