Our Critics

Founded on a commitment to investing in the work of talented, insightful, and stylish literary critics, Splice commissions a minimum of five book reviews per year from each of its masthead writers. This allows Splice to offer in-depth criticism of contemporary literature from a stable of regular contributors, allowing readers to become familiar with each writer’s tastes, tendencies, and judgments over time.

We’re always on the lookout for new reviewers to join the masthead. If you’re interested, take a look at our submissions guidelines.
