Split Lip Magazine is an online affair for literature, music, fine art and film. We accept works of fiction, memoir and poetry. Please read the guidelines, which are not very complicated, and submit accordingly. Each category gives a little information regarding what we're seeking, but what will help us all is for you, the writer, to read the current issue (at least one piece in your genre) or pick a few from our archives. Please gather a sense of what we prefer to publish before submitting. We appreciate you taking time to check us out and look forward to reading what you have to offer.

Fiction Editor Jon Chaiim McConnell says he wants "something unusual. If it's the language, the structure, the characters, the premise -- any or all of them, to whatever degree, I just want to be taken somewhere that I've never been before and then convinced that it's wonderful."
