Curbside Splendor was conceived in the early 1990's at an apartment in Urbana, Illinois. Officially, it was founded in the fall of 2009 and is located in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. They publish literary fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and art that celebrate the delicate point where gritty urban life and art intersect. The work they publish ranges from highly experimental to 'in-your-face' realism. 
 
James Greer is the author of two novels: Artificial Light, which won a California Book Award for best debut novel, and The Failure. He's currently working on a rock musical about Cleopatra with Steven Soderbergh, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones as Cleo, and a slurry of other literary or meta-literary projects. He used to play in a band called Guided By Voices. He used to be Senior Editor/Writer at Spin Magazine. He lives in Los Angeles and writes in France. 
 
Franki Elliot is a music industry professional and the author of Piano Rats. Her new book, Kiss As Many Women As You Can, is a beautiful book of "typewriter stories" - an art book with full-colored detachable postcards adorned with Chicago artist Shawn Stucky's ethereal paintings.
 
Chris Terry is new to Los Angeles. His debut novel, Zero Fade, is written for young adults and set in the heart of the 90s. It follows 13-year-old Kevin Phifer as he deals with "wack hair-cuts, bullies, last-year fly gear, his uncle Paul coming out as gay, and being grounded."
