curbside splendor publishing

Curbside Splendor Publishing was conceived as a punk rock band in the early 1990s in an apartment in Urbana, Illinois. The band never really went anywhere, but Curbside was re-founded as an independent press in the fall of 2009. We’re located in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois.  We publish fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry that celebrates extraordinary voices.

Through a handful of projects (which include publishing books, hosting an annual novella contest, and producing readings, shows, and book fairs) we aim to rewrite the tradition of Midwestern publishing.
