The North – Irish Issue

Deadline: 30 Jul 2018

Issue 61 of The North, to be published in December 2018, will be a special Irish issue, edited by poets Jane Clarke and Nessa O’Mahony. It will focus on work by poets living on the island of Ireland, or who are from Ireland but living elsewhere. 

There is no set theme for submissions, but the editors are interested in contemporary poems reflecting the cultural diversity of life in Ireland in the 21st century, and particularly welcome submissions from poets from minority communities.

Send up to four unpublished poems to thenorthirishissue@gmail.com as a word attachment and cut and past it into the body of the email. Please make sure to put your name, postal address and email address on every sheet.

The editors also intend to include reviews of collections by Irish poets published between January 2017 and end April 2018. We welcome review copies – please email thenorthirishissue@gmail.com for address.
