Note that this publication has a limited number of fee-free submissions through their submission manager, after which fee-based submissions will be the only option. These changes are not tracked through this listing, and for the time being such markets are listed as not being fee-based

We publish new, previously unpublished work by Irish and international writers. We have a particular interest in promoting the short story. Each issue also includes a mix of poetry, book reviews and essays, alongside occasional author interviews and novel extracts. We welcome submissions of poetry and prose in translation.
