The Conglomerate Literary magazine of amalgamated art 7

About

We publish art, gathered pell-mell and assembled with assiduous aplomb. We publish text, images, video, audio, and we combine the work of different artists into single conglomerations. What is a conglomeration? It is a fusing of the disparate. Send us your poem of Augustus gagging on a carrot. Send us your story of a couch that swallows a horny couple as they Netflix and chill. Send us your drawings of an owl pecking out the eyes of a scarecrow. Send us your watercolors of somebody’s aunt’s weathered backside as she picks raspberries from the prickly bushes in her backyard. Send us your filmed puppetry or your stop-motion tale of love between paper clips. Send us your tunes played on a bucket with a spoon, or your twin harmony breathing noises. Send us something that impregnates our brainnoodles. Then, watch as your story of a contorting ventriloquist who faces his own ass as it talks to his face appears alongside a second artist’s cut-up collages of a lion in pirate boots Heimlich-maneuvering a nudist in a tutu choking on a pretzel all to the beat of a third artist’s recording of herself bashing a cookie jar with a two-by-four. So, to reiterate, know this: thy poem shan’t stand alone, nor shall thy short story hog the page. When you submit your work to The Conglomerate, it will become part of a whole, a piece in a puzzle, a sneeze among the sniffling. Submit and join the ostensibly disparate.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
