Poetry Ireland Review is published quarterly. We welcome unsolicited submissions of poems, and proposals for articles and reviews, from Ireland and abroad, in Irish or English.
Guidelines for Poetry Submissions
- Send a maximum of six poems.
- Keep a hard copy of each submission.
- Poems should be original, and previously unpublished.
- Poems should be typed, with a cover note containing contact details and publication credits, if any. (Previous publication credits are not necessary to be considered for publication in Poetry Ireland Review).
- If a poem continues over more than one page, clearly indicate stanza breaks between pages.
- A stamped self-addressed envelope should be enclosed to facilitate return. Alternatively, include an e-mail address with your posted submission if you only need notification of the editor’s decision and don’t need your work returned. The paperwork will be recycled in due course.
- Overseas submissions should be accompanied by International Reply Coupons to faciliate the return of work, or with an e-mail address (see above) if you don't need the submission returned.
- There are no restrictions on style or subject, but Poetry Ireland strongly dislikes poems advocating sexism or racism.
The Editor normally replies within a maximum of 3 months, This timeframe
may vary with the volume of submissions at any given time, and we have often turned around work within a fortnight to a month of receipt.
Poets will receive a copy of the issue in which their work appears plus a payment for their contribution. The payment currently stands at €40, or its equivalent.
Articles and Reviews
Articles and reviews are normally commissioned by the Editor. We will, however, consider proposals for both, but unsolicited articles and reviews will not be considered. Reviewers and article writers receive a copy of the journal plus payment. The minimum payment for an article or a review is currently €75, or its equivalent.
Where to Submit Your Work
All communications should be addressed to the Editor, currently John F Deane (see address below).
Email: e-mail submissions are not accepted, although an e-mail address may be included with a posted submission – see above.
