Journal Communion

Communion is not affiliated with any literary school or movement. We simply publish what moves us. Emotionally. Intellectually. While the magazine is not thematic as such, we lean toward work that in some way reflects the concept of communion – with others, self, the world at large etc.

Journal concīs

concīs is an online and e-pub journal devoted to brevity: the succinct, pithy, condensed, laconic, crisp, compressed and compendious. It’s simple in approach and simple in design…but not simple-minded. Genre—if you believe in such labels—is unimportant: poems, prose poems, flash fictions, micro-essays, reviews in miniature, sudden fictions, haiku, tanka, American Sentences, insights, epigrams, the unclassifiable…they’re all good.
