Call for Submissions


We consider unpublished work from Irish and international authors. We intend to publish a mix of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, translation, and memoir.


 The deadline for submission to the next issue is Sunday, 4 October 2020.


  • Individuals may submit up to 2 pieces of prose or 3 poems.
  • Prose must not exceed 2,500 words in length.
  • Poetry should be submitted in the format in which you wish it to appear on the page; individual poems should not exceed 50 lines.


  • Submissions should be set in Times New Roman, 12 point, 1.5 spacing. The file name should be your surname and initial(s) and genre (e.g. Smith J_Poetry).
  • The work submitted for consideration should contain no identifying information, e.g. name or address, to allow for a blind reading of work submitted.
  • Authors are asked to submit pieces of work separately for each category (i.e. one document containing a poem or poems, another for prose).
  • Include a 150-word biography. Clearly the name to be used in any publication.
  • Please attach one file only per category (e.g. all poems submitted should be in one document) up to two (2) categories per person.


  • We cannot accept work that has been previously published (including personal blogs) and prefer not to receive work currently being reviewed elsewhere.
  • We cannot enter into correspondence with individual authors.
  • Work submitted after the deadline has passed will not be considered.
  • If you wish to withdraw a submission for any reason, please notify us by email prior to the deadline.
  • We receive a high volume of submissions and many emails; please be patient with us as we try to manage this!
  • The Ogham Stone unfortunately cannot offer monetary payment to authors and artists who are accepted for publication. All published authors and artists will receive a copy of the journal.
  • Finally, thank you for your interest in The Ogham Stone!
