The Conium Review needs a couple new fiction editors for the 2016 publication season. Our staff is volunteer-based (sorry, you’re doomed to be a stereotypical starving artist for the foreseeable future). The reading load involves at least ten submissions per week (and some individual submissions may contain more than one story).
If you’re interested in getting involved, read the details here and then shoot us an e-mail. Be sure to explain why you’re interested in editing for The Conium Review specifically. There are plenty of journals out there. So why us? Flattery will get you everywhere.
Sarah Collill-Brown (former contributor with “Short” and current Vol. 4 fiction editor) has a couple new pieces up at Dead Darlings.
In “Shaking the Slump,” she tackles writer’s block. In “Discovering the Big Easy,” Sarah discusses the role of place and environment in a novel.
Congrats on these latest publications, Sarah!
The Conium Review welcomes two new fiction editors to the masthead: Sarah Colwill-Brown and Justin Carmickle.
Sarah Colwill-Brown was a finalist in our 2014 Flash Fiction Contest, and her story “Short” was published on The Conium Review Online Compendium. She’s the marketing manager for GrubStreet, a nonprofit creative writing center in Boston, MA. She holds an MA in English Literature from Boston College, where she served as assistant managing editor of Post Road. Follow Sarah on Twitter or check out her blog here.
Justin Carmickle earned his MFA in fiction at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he served as Assistant Literary Editor of Blackbird. His fiction has appeared in Louisiana Literature, Mary, and Midwestern Gothic. He begins his PhD in English at the University of Southern Mississippi this fall.
Read more about Sarah, Justin, or our other talented staff on our masthead page.
