Former publisher of Purpleprose.com, Richard Kriheli has set out to “make some definitive advances” in publishing SPLIT, both socially – by bringing together “artists and folks who love the arts,” and progressively – by riding the new wave of “the digital arts curation and circulation experience.”
Kriheli explains, “SPLIT is an experiment in digital publishing designed to showcase emerging talent in the art of storytelling. We are focused on the advancement of the literary arts and seek to break the predictable trends of traditional publishing. It is said that in order to actualize change, a split from routine must be in order.”
To create this new split, Issue.01 includes a novel excerpt by William Creedle, art by Vince Beauchemin, Malathip Kriheli, and Michelle Han, fiction by J.A. Pak, John Abbott, and Everett Maroon, and poetry by Cassie McDaniel.
The magazine is available online via website format, and each piece allows opportunities for readers to tweet and comment/like via Facebook interface.
Submissions of stories, photos, art, poetry, “whatever,” are currently being accepting for the spring issue, themed “Spill.” Deadline March 1.
