Burning Bush Submissions

I have never been a huge fan of online Poetry Mags as some seem to have no editorial filtering whatsoever but recently there has been a spate of new mags or old mags going online with some poems worth reading.

Of course, the business model with little or no advertising possible and no subscription income, means no payment for the poets so bear that in mind.

And some embrace the multimedia posssibilities more enthusiastically and imaginatively than others. Why so few mp3s or videos?

Burning Bush, a revival of a mag that used to be based in Galway, revived by Alan Jude Moore.  There are some terrific poems, well worth a dip

Patrick Chapman, Kevin Higgins, Nuala Ni Chonchuir, Dave Lordan, Sarah Maria Griffin etc. Hardly any women, I notice. Maybe they'll address that for the next issue. Maybe more women need to submit.

Submission should be no bigger than 4 poems, in the body of an email, to

The closing date for receipt of submissions is 10 June.
