A literary place for the fringe.

Skink Beat Review is in its third year; a labor of love founded for space for the untraditional.

Hybrid and experimental work is a must. We adore when artists include original art. Minimal departure, brevity, turns-of-phrase that hold us in pause.

We try really hard to publish 4x a year. Sometimes life sucks. We always want Horror submissions for October and Pride submissions for June.

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. In Heels. With Smiles
