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.

American Chordata is a biannual magazine of bright voices in fiction, nonfiction essay, and poetry, as well as art and photography. We are founded on the belief that a good literary magazine can celebrate sophisticated design and earnest expression on the same 5.5 by 8.5 page.

American Chordata seeks to publish short works of original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and translation. There are no formal world limits or stylistic constraints. We're looking for work that is brave, illuminating, and emotionally detailed.

The OS is most interested in supporting those who are interested in supporting each other and the community: we care less about your pedigree and more about your energy. We care that your voice is uniquely yours and will never publish derivative, trendy work—we’d rather take a risk on an unknown than publish more of the same from a star. Ideally, you are already engaged in your work in a way that understands this—or you’d like to be.

Please do be familiar with the Operating System's mission and previous works! Check out our online platform, poke around our community, read and explore. Submissions that work best for us are from people who specifically seek the sort of press we are—not those mass submitting to a huge number of presses. That said, if you feel you're a fit, and the OS speaks to you, we'll find a way to make it work—even if it means working together on your manuscript for a year or more. We love big here—we want you to feel supported and empowered. But you've got to really show up. Consider publishing online via our platform / in one of our ongoing series as well!

We are the quiet conversations, the confession, the uncomfortable, the indulgent and the beautiful. We publish diverse voices, we are invested in intersectional feminism, and we are are confident in our ability to make conversation happen. We aren't soft.

Balance light & dark.

Push our buttons.

The Common is a print and digital literary journal published biannually, in the fall and spring. Inspired by the role of the town common, a public gathering place for the display and exchange of ideas, the Common seeks to deepen our individual and collective sense of place through bold, engaging literature and art. Issues of the Common include short stories, essays, poems, and images that embody a strong sense of place.

Please DO: Read issues of the Common before submitting; Send us your very best work; Make sure that place/location is significant in your piece before submitting. Please DO NOT: Submit conventional travel logs that simply recount travel experiences. We are looking for more thoughtful, reflective pieces in which place greatly informs the character(s)’/narrator(s)’ thoughts, decisions, perspective, etc.
