Writer Jennifer Matthews, of the Munster Literature Centre, has branched out into online publication with her welcome new literary journal, Long Story Short, which will specialise in long short fiction.
Jen was born in Missouri and has lived in Ireland since 2003. Her poetry has been published, among other places, in The Stinging Fly, Cork Literary Review and Mslexia, and anthologised in Dedalus's collection of immigrant poetry in Ireland, Landing Places (2010).
Long Story, Short, the site says, 'is the home for tales that take their time' and will publish stories between 4000 and 9000 words. It launches mid-October 2012. One story will be published every month, and submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. The journal is also seeking original artwork and photography to accompany the stories.
