Moloch Showcase night

Moloch is an online journal of new art and writing. I'm never too sure of the benefit of online journals. Is there any editorial process at all? Who reads them? There's never any money involved but is there any other benefit?

Anyway, they're hosting a showcase night in Dublin on Thursday 31st July in the Winding Stair on Ormonde Quay starting at 19:00; admission free.

They have a blog.

We're going to show off just a few of our lovely talented crew, including Kevin Higgins, Alan Jude Moore, Stephen Kelly and The Perfect Consonants. Moloch was founded in December 2006 by Ailbhe Darcy and Clodagh Moynan. Tying different art forms together in new and refreshing ways, Moloch aspires to allow
artists and writers to find inspiration in each other and, in doing so, add new dimensions to each others work.
For the showcase night, Kevin Higgins will be joining us from Galway. We'll also have poetry read by Dubliner Alan Jude Moore and Poet and songwriter Stephen Kelly. Plus there'll be music from The Perfect Consonants, sometimes known as the Darran-Mark-and-Aoife Quartet.

I tell you what though, I admire this group for getting their act together, getting out there and doing there thing in public. Instead of sitting at home and whining about it (like me.)

Thanks for posting this. Just for the record, there is a very arduous editorial process involved in Moloch! A very small percentage of the submissions we get make it into the journal.
