concīs (aka concis) is an online and e-pub journal devoted to brevity: the concise (naturally), 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.
Tips From the Editor
Concision doesn't equal cutting short. Economy doesn't mean making your readers do all the work. Tiny isn't a stand-in for weak: we're looking for blooming bulbs, bullets and brevity bombs, not seeds, stones or sprawl. Humor is hard. Love poems are hard. Writing about writing and poems about poetry are hard. Think twice; send once.
