Matador 2016: Year in Review
This "Year in Review" comes after Matador's first birthday on February 20th.
There are countless articles that question the relevancy of small literary magazines and whether or not they are effective. During our first year, our collective focus was "getting off the ground." And through all trials and errors, we reminded each other that the premier year was a process. We kept in mind what the articles said, that there is "hardly any space" for yet another digital publication, or that a "niche magazine" would live and die in short order. And that may be true: we've seen many of our friends disappear. But that mustn't be the case each time, and we are paying close attention to the numbers.
We invite you to look at the data we've been watching for the past year. For this year, our focus is "staying off the ground." Thank you for your friendship and reading eyes--here's to another year of getting things done.
