Submissions for The Incubator Selects… will reopen in April 2019

(please read the Submissions page)


Check out March’s story I Can See a Better Time by The Man in the Black Pyjamas.



All 14 issues of The Incubator Journal (showcasing the contemporary Irish short story) are available to read, share and enjoy on the Journal page.


The Incubator is not funded and our editors are volunteers, therefore we rely on contributions to cover basic admin charges and to pay our writers. Email us at editor[dot]theincubator[at]gmail.com to find out how you can support the project.
