OUR SUBMISSION WINDOW IS OPEN UNTIL - 30TH MAY 2016.
We are an online quarterly publication. Please read the site before submitting and do not ask for hard copies of "the magazine"- shows us you've not read the submissions page. Regrettably we cannot pay for new writing. There are many excellent writing magazines who have the funding to pay, at the minute we are not one of them and asking for payment when we contact you to ask if we may use the work you sent us, again, shows you don't read The Irish Literary Review, or even the submission page before you clicked send.
Poems should not exceed 40 lines. You may send up to five poems in any one submission. Flash fiction should be under 500 words. Please send no more than one piece of flash fiction at a time. Fiction should be no shorter than 1500 words and no longer than 3000 words. Please send no more than one story at a time.
You may submit in more than one genre at the same time. All submissions must be previously unpublished. We will not accept changes to a submission if we have accepted it in the format you originally sent it, so please make sure what you have submitted is what you would want to be published.
While we accept simultaneous submissions we ask that you let us know immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Unfortunately we cannot pay for publication.
Please do not submit again until you have had a response from us. We aim to reply to all submissions within 3 months. Please do not contact us before the three month reading period is up; we are working as fast and as thoroughly as we can to provide a quality publication, publishing new and established writers from around the world.
Please include a short cover note in your submission email outlining your publication history and writing experience. Write this short biography in the third person as you see the biographies on the website. If you have not heard from us 2 months after the submission window has closed, please consider your submission unsuccessful.
Please send all work in one single .doc attachment only. Do not copy and paste work in to the body of your email. Address all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to reading your work.
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone's knowledge of himself and the world around him.” Dylan Thomas
