A literary place for the fringe.

Skink Beat Review is a an online literary journal created by Natalie Byers and Nikki Boss. The two decided they were sick of looking for the “perfect” fringe publishing outlet, so they went ahead and created their own.

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

Skink Beat Review drops in Winter (Dec 25), Spring (Apr 25), and Summer (May 25, June 25, and July 25). Submissions accepted year-round; please view the submissions page.

Try to include some art, a photo…make it count.
