Share This!

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. It’s Dada time. And now . . . pull back the curtain. Here it is:


DETAILS: With the rise in social media use, the concept of “like” has reached whole new levels. There’s the idea of an individual’s reaction to events, people, images, etc. as a reduction to “Like” or “Dislike” without need for deeper consideration. Then there is the status factor: that something which is “Liked” by the largest number of people is of value. The concept, while simple, has innumerable ways of looking at it.

All submissions must be received by

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, Maximum File Size 10 MB). If you are submitting 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, but you can still include image in black and white or color. Please consider submitting either color or black-and-white images on the theme of We Are All A Like. If you are submitting a written piece–poetry or prose–it should be no longer than 25 lines on the theme of We Are All A Like.

Maintenant 12 will be published in June 2018, 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. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE #2: Maximum file size is 10 MB. Anything larger won’t go through. Please keep file size 10MB or less (but still 300dpi)!!
