Call for submissions: flash fiction

The Conium Review Online Compendium seeks flash fiction submissions. The current reading period runs from April 1st to June 1st, 2015. We want stories under 1,000 words that take risks. We publish plenty of paragraphed prose, but we like seeing oddball forms too: fiction written as lists, chat logs, bank statements, court transcripts, or whatever else you cook up.

Full submission guidelines are available here.

To get a better sense of what we’re looking for, take a look at some of our recently posted stories.

Calling All Editors

Do you work or volunteer for a literary journal or small press?

Yes?

Me too!

Let’s talk about cross-promotion. We want to hear from other journals—large or small, it doesn’t  matter. We hope that you can share our calls for submissions and publication updates with your readers, and we’ll share your news too. If you’re interested in reciprocally sharing posts online, please get in touch: editors@coniumreview.com

Call for guest reviewers and bloggers

Hey, bloggers and book reviewers. From November 1st to December 1st, we’re seeking new blog posts. Send us interviews, writing strategies, reading habits, and anything else related to writing and reading.

Be a part of The Conium Review‘s growing online presence. Our print publication has been called “spectacular” by Small Press Reviews, and Prick of the Spindle says we’re “raising a unique voice.  And it’s one worth listening to.”

We’re looking for polished writing; make sure your language is crisp and creative. Every blog submission is considered by at least two staff readers before we decide to accept or reject it, so make sure your prose is engaging; you need to impress both staff readers.

See the blog post guidelines here, and check out the book review guidelines here.

Or go submit your posts through our Submittable page.

If you have an idea for a regular column or feature? E-mail us here: editors@coniumreview.com

Thanks for submitting!
