“The Matador Review strives to be a cultural conservationist for the alternative world. In each issue, we offer a selection of work from both emerging and established artists, as well as exclusive interviews and reviews from creators who are, above all else, provocative.” The Editors

Alternative art and literature magazine The Matador Review is accepting submissions for the Summer 2019 publication. This review featured poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, inviting all unpublished literature written in the English language (and translations that are accompanied by the original text) as well as many forms of visual art. Submissions are open through May 31, 2019 for the summer issue.

The Matador Review is an online literature and art quarterly based in Los Angeles and Chicago. Founded in January 2016, the 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 Damian Van Denburgh, Rachelle Cruz, Heidi Seaborn, Jeremy Radin, Marguerite L. Harrold, and others.

Submission information can be found HERE.


POETiCA REViEW “exists to promote the work of new and older poets alike, the less fortunate, the dispossessed, those without a voice, but encourage the artistic talents of all, not just a privileged minority.” Submission guidelines HERE. Watch the site for upcoming competition announcement.

ERRATUM: Yesterday I announced that I set up The new Facebook The BeZine Arts and Humanities Group, a place to share all your arts activities and accomplishments, not just poetry, in the hope of inspiring one another and encouraging collaborations among the arts. Within this group you can announce publications, showings, events and so forth. You are encouraged to share your videos: music, poetry readings, photography, art, film and so forth. I also provided information on the long-established “The BeZine” 100TPC (and Friends) for Change group discussion page. I’ve corrected the email address provided in the post. And here today the correct email for submissions and communications for the Zine is bardogroup@gmail.com .

Note: Call for submissions to the March 15, 2019 issue of The BeZine is closed. We are currently reading for that issue and will respond to submissions shortly.  Calls for submissions will open again from April 15 through June 10 for the June issue, which is themed sustainability.  Thank you! 


Thank you!
