CỌ́N-SCÌÒ, pronounced CON-SHE-O, is the magazine of collective knowledge.
Our name comes from ‘CON’ [a word-forming element meaning “together”] + ‘SCIO’ [a Latin word that means “to know”]. Thus, our purpose is to provide a home for original creative works — expressed in poetry, fiction and non-fiction prose, art & photography — that interrogate aspects of our shared society in order to improve our collective knowledge.
We have no stylistic or ideological allegiance besides creativity & originality.
