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!
