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 around the globe. We are honored to be included in the New York Museum of Modern Art archives, as well museums and galleries worldwide. So … drumroll, please.:


DETAILS: DETAILS: The theme of MAINTENANT 11 will be EYE FOR A LIE: encompassing artists’ and writers’ exposing a lie within the system of themselves. We are all part of that same system and we all are vessels to carry on the lie and it is the artists’ and writers’ duty to expose a lie not for what it’s worth but at ALL costs. Point the reader to a lie that they can see through or place another lie between two more lies. The more lies you expose the better. The”tit for tat” philosophy has taken us to this point. Let us Expose a lie and then Expose it even more. Let’s all OUTDO each other exposing Lies.

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). If you are submitted a text file, please do NOT try to send in .docx format. Save it as a .doc file and this should work (there seems to be a bug in the form program that will not allow .docx files this year — sorry! This year we will be printing in full COLOR. Please consider submitting either color or black-and-white images on the theme of EYE FOR A LIE. If you are submitting a written piece–poetry or prose–it should be no longer than 25 lines on the theme of EYE FOR A LIE.

Maintenant 11 will be published in June 2017, with themed launch event(s) in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Europe. Stay tuned for details.

Fill in this form and upload your writing or art. We’ll be making our decisions in February and March. NOTE: File size must be 10 MB or less; no exceptions. Also, you must fill in ALL required fields. Good luck.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: At this time we cannot accept Word docx files. Please resave any Word docx files as doc files (you can do this in Word by using “Save As” and choosing “doc” instead of “docx”), the resubmit. Thanks for your patience as we continue to work to get this issue resolved.
