Editorial Focus

Matter Press is a community-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) literary press that publishes an online literary journal (The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts), manages an annual short fiction and poetry chapbook contest, and supports a regular reading series. Matter Press offers internships to graduate MFA and Publishing students as submission readers, literary editors, and publication designers. Matter Press focuses on supporting emerging and established authors working with condensed forms of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and visual arts.

Tips From the Editor

For all submitters, we aren't as concerned with labels—hint fiction, prose poetry, micro fiction, flash fiction, and so on—as we are with what compression means to you. In other words, what form "compression" takes in each artist's work will be up to each individual. However, we don't publish erotica or work with strong, graphic sexual content. In short, we want to fall in love with your work. That might happen in the way we've fallen in love with work we've previously published, or it might happen in a way we have yet to experience. Maybe reading that other work will help in knowing whether you should send your work to us, but in truth, such a thing might not be discoverable.
