Enjoyed reading the poetry in the current issue.

It looks as though it is only Irish writers or those with close ties (ie residency) who are published here. is that right?

The current issue does look very Hibernocentric, Vanessa. Previous issues were less so. A Brooklynite was in an issue I was in, I recall. But I can't seem to find a way to access past issues. Which is kind of dumb...

There's a link on my site to one of the ones I was in (duh).
Anyway, people could maybe mail them and ask if non-Irish subs are welcome?
