Introducing the 2014 Flash Fiction Contest

Beside Myself coverWe’re pleased to announce our annual flash fiction contest.  This year’s judge is Ashley Farmer.  She is the author of a The Women (Civil Coping Mechanisms, forthcoming 2016), Beside Myself (Tiny Hardcore Press, 2014), and Farm Town (Rust Belt Binder, 2012).  She’s also the Co-Managing Editor of Juked.

This contest is run through The Conium Review Online Compendium.  The winner receives a $300 honorarium.  The winning piece is posted online, but we’re also making the winning piece into a tangible object.  It will become a broadside or micro-chap that we will hand out for free at our AWP Conference table.  If the winner is attending the 2015 AWP Conference in Minneapolis, there may also be a chance for an off-site reading of her or his work.  For the winning author, this a great opportunity to get your work out there and make some dough in the process.

The contest opens for submissions on October 15th and closes on December 15th.  There is a $10 contest entry fee.  Full guidelines available here.

The Conium Review is on WordPress (again)

The Conium Review has had a WordPress blog for a while, but it’s main function was for hosting the podcast.  Moving forward, we’re making WordPress a more integral part of our online presence.

We’ve moved some of the most important posts from The Conium Review website (i.e. book reviews) over to WordPress.  A few other posts will migrate soon, and we’ll be more active on WordPress moving forward.

Please share the blog with your friends and followers. We look forward to connecting with the WordPress blogging community.

Thanks for supporting our small press!
