Alternative art and literature magazine The Matador Review seeks submissions year-round. They publish poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, inviting all unpublished literature written in the English language (and translations that are accompanied by the original text) as well as many forms of visual art. Their purpose is to promote "alternative work" from both art and literature, and to encourage the new-wave of respect for online publications. In each issue, they 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. It is the distinction from what is conventional, and it advocates for a progressive attitude.
