Relocating to the Philadelphia area in 2016, Split Lip has gone through some major developments over the last two years including establishing an indie press wing to go along with its literary magazine. Split lip, the literary journal, recently celebrated its first print release at this year’s AWP conference. In recongition of the growth and development of Arcadia’s neighbor, this week we are reposting a piece from the Split Lip archive by James Yates, “Love Bugs.” James Yates is a contributing editor to Longform.org. A graduate of the MFA program at Roosevelt University in Chicago, his fiction has appeared in Hobart, matchbook literary magazine, Vol 1. Brooklyn, WhiskeyPaper, and other publications.
