Curbside Splendor

Curbside Splendor features stories, poetry, and photography that is gritty, powerful, and celebrates urbanism. See the available issues below. 

"Curbside Splendor is a 'city' magazine that casts a wider net, with stories ranging out into suburban and even exurban interests. The design creates an urban and urbane showcase for the stories and poems set beside striking, complementary photography. It is a journal likewise proud of its writers and poets, placing brief bios in front of their works instead of relegating them to the back of the book. Then there’s the poetry: a variety of voices, whose general common denominator is a lack of pretentiousness. Try finding a litmag with that quality! Read Curbside Splendor now, and grow with it. - Newcity Lit

"May I be blunt? I love Curbside Splendor. I have almost despaired of university literary journals – I can feel the boredom of the great plains and the drudgery of academic work through every line. Where did the art of engagement go? Curbside is refreshingly free of political correctness and the strictures academic hot house. It's even run by people with day jobs in the real world -- imagine that! 'Curbside' stories, poems, and short shorts are punchy, direct, often hyperbolic – reflecting the mind-set and communication style of city life." - Christina Gombar, acclaimed author and editor.
