Reviewer of meat products, sanitary equipment and deli-slicers? Hardly. The Bacon Review is a forum for facts and fictions.
Edited by the writer/designer Eric Westerlind and poet/editor Jason Barry, this journal was founded in 2011 as a monthly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and intellectual life.
Our authors are people; we seek their motivations and inspirations through avid critique, review, and interviews. Some of that shows, much doesn’t.
We are aware that the commercial publishing industry is facing difficult times, and consequently, it’s often the case that good writing is not published and authors not promoted. It’s our goal to make excellent work available to you for free.
The best way to join the conversation with us is to submit you work.
Thanks for your support, Jason and Eric
