Parentheses Journal, a new collaborative venture in the quest for sharing art, operates on the quintessence of art for the sake of art.

We are an online journal. Give us your dailies, the mundane still life, tales spurned out of your clay, restless thoughts, unanswered plurals – we welcome poetry, fiction, and art (illustrations, photography, et cetera) from across coasts and climes. Send up to 5 pieces in any one genre. Simultaneous submissions welcome. We are a non-paying venture. We do not accept translations at this point.

Call for Editor-in-Spirit: We call for an editor-in-spirit that understands and wishes to be part of the aesthetic which governs our cause can drop in an expository email before we take it on. Part of the reason for this call is for diversification of content and outreach.

Poetry-in-translation magazine Balkan Poetry Today is now open for submissions. We’re interested in translations of contemporary poetry from across the entire SE Europe region as well as from the Balkan diaspora and so we’re inviting submissions from translator-poets and translator-poet pairings, as well as proposals for relevant book reviews and articles. There is no deadline as such: the first issue is due to appear in mid-2017, followed by a second in the autumn of 2017. I’ve attached more general information and links. The email address for submissions is: balkanpoetrytodayeditor@gmail.com and the website for the publishers of the journal, Red Hand Books, is here: http://www.redhandbooks.co.uk/

The Matador Review is an online literature and art quarterly based in Chicago, Illinois. We publish poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, inviting all unpublished literature written in the English language (and translations that are accompanied by the original text) as well as many forms of visual art.
We are accepting submissions for our Summer 2017 publication through May 31.
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.
Submission information can be found at: 
Submissions can be sent to 

Questions and concerns can be sent to contact@matadorreview.com
