Matador Review 130

About

The Matador Review is an online literature and art quarterly based in Los Angeles and Chicago. We publish poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art. Founded in January 2016, our purpose is to promote "alternative work" from both art and literature, and to encourage respect for online publications. In each issue, we offer a selection of work from both emerging and established artists, as well as exclusive interviews and book reviews from creators who are, above all else, provocative. Recent contributors include Nia KB, Harrison Cook, Rachelle Cruz, Heidi Seaborn, Damian Van Denburgh, Amalie Kwassman, and others.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
