General Submission Information

Three Rooms Press seeks exciting and diverse new projects. Our commitment to excellence has led us to work on such projects as:

  • Award-winning queer young adult and coming-of-age novels; 
  • Memoir and biography of overlooked mentors, counterculture figures, or punk rock legends;
  • Literary fiction and nonfiction inspired by underrepresented people and themes--and punk rock;
  • Mystery and noir featuring complex, diverse main characters in contemporary settings; and
  • Science-fiction and fantasy that shows exceptional writing rather than tricky gadgets 

For all of the above, please visit our website Submissions Guidelines page and follow the instructions to submit.

Maintenant Dada Journal Submission Information

Three Rooms Press publishes an annual, internationally-renowned journal of contemporary DADA writing and art, MAINTENTANT. The submission period for our next issue, MAINTENANT 18, runs from January 1, 2024 through March 15, 2024

MAINTENANT 18 will feature DADA work on the theme of PLUTOCRAZY 

It’s easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism." 
some theorist said.

 The economy no longer serves human society. It’s a business. So it is time to give business the business.

We will redistribute our wealth of new ideas into a Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art called MAINTENANT 18.

Let's shape public opinion with a PLUTOCRAZY of our own manufacture.

Creativity is our currency and the amount has no limit. We must separate Merch and State by forging a non-monetary vision which reveals strategies to achieve socio-political and economic equality that expose the military-industrialist complex by linking warfare with capitalism. Shine a light through every crack for we the people. The answers will come from our brand!

There are 2,640 billionaires in the world and we've got each of them right where we want them.
