​​Welcome to Split Lip Magazine

Split Lip Magazine is a literary journal of voice-driven writing with a pop culture twist. We publish online monthly and in print annually.

 

 

Our History

 

In 2012, J. Scott Bugher founded Split Lip Magazine and Split Lip Press as a venue for showcasing art, music, and film, in addition to the fiction, poetry, and memoir traditionally found in literary magazines. In 2014, Amanda Miska took over the magazine and press, and she began cultivating an active, diverse community of writers and artists. In 2017, the magazine and press became two distinct entities under different leadership to better serve each group of writers and readers. Kaitlyn Andrews-Rice took over as Editor-in-Chief of Split Lip Magazine at that time, through August 2019. Although we continue to share a name, the press and the magazine are run as independent organizations. For more information, please contact Split Lip Press here
