About MBOM

Mat Black Online Magazine is an opportunity for writers to be heard. We publish first timers as well as distinguished writers looking for a home for their work.

The pieces that give us chills, the pieces that make us step back and think about our surroundings, those are the ones we are looking for. Make us laugh, make us cry, make us fear death. Hell, make us want to die. Love, hate, hope, irony, depression—life has many feelings and emotions. What makes you feel these things? We want to read something that proves to us that the human brain is still worth something. Or maybe it is worth nothing.

As writers we are artists. We paint pictures with our words. Show us your picture.
