BURNING BUSH - the revival
Burning Bush is back! When I first started sending work out for publication, it was the local magazine here in Galway - it was always interesting, lively and, sometimes, a little controversial. One of its editors, poet Michael S. Begnal, has revived the magazine online, under the editorship of poet Alan Jude Moore. Alan's editorial contains a little of the history of the magazine.
The first issue sees poetry from many poets who were Bush regulars way back when (the late nineties, early noughties). I have two poems in there and there is work from wonderful writers such as Patrick Chapman, John MacKenna, Gerard Smyth, Emily Cullen, Dave Lordan, Peadar O'Donoghue and C. Murray, not to forget Michael S. Begnal himself.
It looks like they need more subs from women writers so, ladies, get submitting here for future issues. The next deadline is the 1st March for April publication.
