Come follow us at The Conium Review Online Compendium

This particular WordPress blog has been dormant for a while, but all the content has been moved to our main site.  We recently changed our website and added WordPress.org functionality to it.  Our WordPress.com (dot-com, not dot-org) will be deleted soon.  Please follow the migrated blog if you want to keep receiving our posts.

You can find The Conium Review Online Compendium at http://coniumreview.com/online/

This site contains all our normal blog content, but it serves as a venue for online publication too.  Over the past few weeks, we’ve been posting new flash fiction to the site.  See what we’ve been up to, take a look at our upcoming print edition, and consider submitting to our Flash Fiction Contest ($300 prize, judged by Ashley Farmer).

We hope to see you at the new blog!

The Conium Review’s website will be down for a couple days

Our website will be down for a couple days.  We’ve performing some major updates, shifting web hosts, and generally spicin’ things up around here.

The blog will remain active through most of the upgrade, but the main site (including our store) will be down.  If you have questions about the journal, submissions, or purchases, you can always e-mail us at editors@coniumreview.com

Thanks for understanding!
