Oregon Poetry Association – Fall Conference

The Oregon Poetry Association’s fall conference is in Salem, September 14-15. Registration and schedule will be up soon on the OPA website, oregonpoets.org. The program includes workshops, presentations, and readings.

    At the general membership meeting during the conference, four Board positions will be filled. This is an invitation to consider becoming a Board member. Both LLG and OPA share a number of aims and can certainly benefit from close connections.

    Please browse OPA’s website to see its various offerings. Please become an OPA member, to support poetry outreach through the state and to student poets. Members receive discounts for contests and conferences.

MATADOR REVIEW Seeks Submissions

Alternative art and literature magazine The Matador Review is accepting submissions for the Fall 2019 publication. Matador Review publishes poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, inviting all unpublished literature written in the English language (and translations that are accompanied by the original text) as well as many forms of visual art. The call for submissions will end August 31.

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

Submission information can be found at www.matadorreview.com/submissions
