Conclave is a print and eBook of writing and photography

Conclave wants poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction of exceptional literary merit. The work we seek has an impact on the reader. It is not merely about the mystery of being, but heightens the reader’s sense of the majesty underlying the fabric of our daily lives. We're looking for work about character or work that displays character, that holds it up to a fresh light and helps readers see what they did not see before. We're looking for writing that matters, writing that makes a difference.

We seek to be broad, inclusive, and open to perspectives spanning all spectrums of thought, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

We are interested in work originally written in English and work in English translation from any language. We are interested in all genres, including mixed or multiple genre works, or work that simply defies classification.
