The Conium Review



Description
The Conium Review publishes innovative writing. We don't rely on quotas or preconceived notions of what's "publishable." Unless otherwise noted, we don't typically have word count limits or thematic restrictions.

We want your wildest settings and weirdest plots. We want fine-tuned prose and active characters. We want stories that take risks. But most importantly, we want your very best writing, whatever that entails.
