2019 Conference Registration Form

Our conference theme, “Our Common Life,” is highlighted by this year’s keynote speaker, Penelope Scambly Schott, with her topic The Personal Iin the Community of We.She says, “Skim through any contemporary poetry journal and you will find lots of poems written in first person singular. Some are persona poems but most are the poet’s own voice describing that poet’s own experience. How does the “I”poem relate to our shared world?”

MATADOR REVIEW Seeks Submissions

Matador Review publishes poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, inviting all unpublished literature written in the English language (and translations that are accompanied by the original text) as well as many forms of visual art.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.
