Hidden Channel is a quarterly arts zine published in Sligo focusing on the strange and the mundane in equal measure. We publish poetry, pop culture essays, fiction, photography and art. Here are our guidelines for submitting work:
-Submit no more than 3 poems or 1 short story/essay/long form poem at a time. Include your work as a .doc format file or in the body of the email.
-If you're submitting art or photography please remember to include the names of pieces where applicable and submit in a jpeg format, with a file size under 5mb.
-Unlike a number of journals, we are fans of longer form poetry. However, be advised only a very limited number of longer form poems can fit in any issue, so we have to be very selective.
-The limit for short stories and essays is 5,000 words.
-The following things are frowned upon by our editors: descriptions of gardens in verse, use of quirky fonts, impressive references to anything in Latin or Greek and nationalist sentiment (of any stripe).
-Although we strive to reply to all inquiries and submissions as quickly as possible, we receive a lot of mail and host a lot of events, so it will take some time to get a reply, especially about submissions.
Submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Bookmart, 5 Lower the Mall, Sligo.
