Literary Orphans

Ireland & the Irish

Send us your stories, your poems, your lyric essays, your unwashed, your poor, your bastards, your monsters, your orphans. We’re reading submissions for our Ireland issue. We want writing that represents 21st Century Ireland in all its multifaceted glory. Whether you’re Irish, of Irish descent, or simply enjoy a glass of Tullamore Dew or Bushmills, send your best work. Refrain, of course, from any mention of Emerald Isle, forty shades of green, Leprechauns, St. Patrick, Riverdance, The Quiet Man, or other similarly reductive tropes. Bring us the Ireland of expansive writing; writing to curl our toes and send shivers down our hard drives. And while you’re at it, no mention of the road rising up to meet you…
