Open for Submissions – A Round Up!

This month, we’ve seen so many great Irish publishing houses and Literary Journals open for submissions, so we just had to compile a list of all the places you should send your work this month.

Remember that each publisher and journal has different submission guidelines and that they should be followed as much as possible. Everyone on this list has a dedicated page on their website explaining their submission guidelines.

So get reading, get editing, and send your work out into the world to find a home – good luck!
