Be a part of Three Rooms Press’ internationally-renowned journal Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art.  Our journal is inspired by DaDa instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan — who created the very first ‘zine in the world with his early 20th century publication Maintenant and we’re proud to carry on the tradition. In past issues, we have published bold work from Neo-Dadaists worldwide. We are honored to be included in the Museum of Modern Art archives.

For the first time ever, printed in full color!

DETAILS: In our increasingly technologically-driven world, humanity–what it means to be human–is in flux. Our reliance on technology has nearly grown to the point of absolute dependency. This year’s issue of Maintenant will explore this theme. Please submit art or writing that interprets the idea of Tech-No Prisoners.

We LOVE Dada-inspired poetic word art, collage and photography. All art must be submitted in jpeg, gif or png format, high resolution (300 dpi, 4×5 in). This year, for the first time ever, we will be printing in full COLOR. Please consider submitting either color or black-and-white images on the theme of Tech-No Prisoners. If you are submitting a written piece–poetry or prose–it should be no longer than 25 lines on the theme of Tech-No Prisoners.

Please fill in the form below, then select the button “Choose File” and select your file from your computer. All submissions must be submitted via the form below. We accept files up to 4 MB in size, in .jpeg, .png, .gif, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .txt formats ONLY. Please submit one piece per file, and one piece at a time. You may submit a maximum of 4 pieces total. If you submit more than 4 pieces, your work will not be considered for publication. If you have any questions, please email Three Rooms Press.

Deadline Extended to: January 15, 2015 – 11:59 p.m. (EST)

Maintenant 9 will be published in Spring 2015, with themed launch event(s) in New York City. Stay tuned for details.
