New Irish Writing - Irish Independant
New Irish Writing, edited by Ciaran Carty, is published in the Irish Independent on the last Saturday of every month and is open to writers who are Irish or are resident in Ireland.
Awards are made annually in three categories: First Fiction (for writers publishing their first story), Emerging Fiction (for writers still to publish their first book) and Emerging Poetry (for first-time poets, or poets still to publish their first collection).
The winner of each category will receive a Hennessy trophy and €1,500. A New Irish Writer of the Year, chosen from the winners of the three categories, will receive an additional prize of €2,500 and a trophy.
Stories submitted to New Irish Writing should not exceed 2,000 words. Up to six poems may be submitted.
There is no entry fee. Writers whose work is selected for publication will receive a payment of €130 for fiction and €65 for poetry.
