Convivium, a journal of arts, culture, and testimony, is dedicated to exploring our common grounds and lonely places, our epiphanies and dark nights - through poetry, fiction, essays, and the visual arts.
Our first issue features the theme root and twig, which challenges us to discover the different ways we encounter rootedness, growth, connection - the bonds between ancient and new, large and small - traditions and heritages of labor, family, or culture.
