Praise for the Journal:
“Everything in this issue begs to have the reader understand what it means to share stories (tragedies or successes) with people that are close to us. They also show how strangers can influence our lives. That's what being an urbanite is all about, lives intersecting other lives. The casualness of the issue gleams what all of us are looking for: meaning in the obvious, the routine, and the fascination in the behavior of people. Curbside Splendor focuses on appreciating the substance of what it means to be urban.” - Another Chicago Magazine (ACM).
“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! 'Curb' 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.
