Our submission window is now open and will close at the end of August. This is the only month that we seek one scene plays, and, as always, we will be looking for unpublished short stories and flash fiction. Please check our guidelines as there have been some recent changes to our maximum word count.

Warmest wishes!

The Editors


Issue 3 is live! Submissions are open for Issue 4.

Issue 3 is here!

We are delighted to share the fiction/essay issue with you. On Saturday 29th November we were joined by the writers of many of the pieces for a launch and reading at Ards Arts. As usual, it was a brilliant evening.

Now you can read the stories here.

Also, all of this month we will be open for submissions of fiction (flash and short stories) and for poetry too. For full details please read our submissions page.

We look forward to your feedback on the new issue and to receiving more fantastic new writing from NI and Ireland.
