The Magazine

Cough Syrup is a literary art and drug-culture magazine. Our content is diverse and we are always growing and evolving. The Magazine is organic, a Conceptual-Feeler machine, a stream, sucking in and manifesting the splatter paint etchings from the Void, plucking the best we can find from this mad Unveiling of Appearances.

We publish art, poetry, and short stories. Essays and articles about Literature, Beats, psychedelics, people or things that are interesting.

We’re trying to sell bliss here, see. Experimental, free-low, free-verse, ooze us out the beauty. We have no real formal categories or conditions like that.

Cough Syrup was started in Winter of 2018, though the concept was originated by Terrance Contreras, ol’ buddy ol’ pal, when he first glimpsed The Clarity and the stream became apparent to itself and all members involved. More than a magazine, more of a inspiratory unfoldment, a progression of events in the probability stream of foolish divide.

47 Society Members. (none of that Underachiever bullshit, sorry if you like them).

Print and digital editions of the magazine are produced. To purchase one please email donovanjmartinez@coughsyrupmag.com. (until we get a store running) The Magazine is not the website. This is our face. Our makeup to show the world the appearance of what is creeping in the depths.

Weird abstract psychedelic.
