We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.
Please read previously published worked to get an idea what we are looking for. Don't just send your MS blindly. We are punk rock publishing. We are looking for energy and edge.
Don't bore me. I'd rather read a slightly wild story that moves me than a perfectly crafted one that does nothing but tell me that maybe you got an MFA in Creative Writing (which: good for you if you did, but I don't care either way).
We also publish articles, interviews, and book reviews.
The Lascaux Review provides a showcase for emerging and established writers and artists. Annual contests are conducted in flash fiction, short fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.
Please send your work via Submittable, according to the guidelines. We cannot process submissions via mail or email.
Easy Street provides writers a venue to showcase their work, to discuss the publishing industry, and to share viewpoints on diverse aspects of contemporary life and culture.
