We encourage submissions from writers across the world who consider Ireland a home in some regard. This is a guideline offered with an expansive vision and an inclusive disposition. Though we would particularly love to read and include works in issues from writers from underrepresented groups, communities, and identities, including, but not limited to, immigrants to Ireland, emigrants, Travellers, farmers, and writers from remote areas of Ireland, we also welcome submissions from established and emerging writers for whom Ireland figures into their writing consciousness. To date, we have published work from writers living around the globe, including from the United States, Canada, Australia, Tasmania, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Ireland.

To submit, please consult the genre-specific guidelines below and send your work to us via email in one document: editors @ (no spaces.) In the subject line, please indicate the genre to which you are submitting, and in the body of your email please include a brief (50 words) biography. Word documents of work are preferred. We read on a rolling basis and hope to respond to submissions within sixty-ninety (60-90) days, sometimes much sooner. Occasionally we will consider works for the following issue if they are received too close to our issue being released. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that you notify us immediately if a part or the whole of your work is accepted elsewhere.

Beginning in 2023, we have begun nominating select, published work that qualifies for literary awards in both the United States and Ireland.

***Beginning in 2024, we have posted reading periods for each issue. If you happened to submit during our period of transition (February-March 2024), and haven’t heard from us yet, please know that your submission will be considered for our next issue, Summer 2024.***

Submission Periods

Each reading period begins on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the second month.

Jan – FEB
July – AUG


Please submit one story at a time, and wait until a decision has been made before submitting again. While there is no limit on word count, short fiction under 3000 words is more likely to be accepted.


Please submit up to 3 poems totaling no more than 10 pages into a single Word document.


Please submit up to one piece. While shorter pieces have a greater chance for acceptance, we’ve published longer, more experimental work, and encourage you to take a chance with us. Optional: You may submit up to three images which relate, in some way, to your submitted writing.
