Fáilte go Trasna

Published quarterly, Trasna is an online literary journal, curating work from Ireland and the Irish Diaspora from across the world. We hope to continue hosting writing from an evolving and more broadly-defined Irish literary tradition: to include any writers who consider themselves a part of the Irish experience. We particularly seek to include voices from those groups who might typically be underrepresented in literary spaces, or left out of myopic definitions of Irishness. We have published emigrants and immigrants, writers from Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Canada, the United States, and elsewhere.

We’ve sought to grow the diversity of work and writers we publish, so if you’re interested in submitting your best to us—poetry, fiction, essays, and hybrids—please visit our Submit page for submission guidelines. If you’re interested in what we’re publishing, please sign up to receive our quarterly issues, bookmark our website, and keep returning to find original content on contemporary Irish writing. Many thanks for joining us here.
