Banshee is a new print magazine (yes, actual print, not just online) Issue one was well received with some lovely launch events. Its published twice a year, April and September.
They're taking non-fiction essays – personal, cultural, political – as well as short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. The best thing to do is to visit their website at www.bansheelit.com, read ‘about’ us, check the submission guidelines, and follow them.
And they pay a small contributors fee. Yes, actual money.
You can purchase issue #1 or a one- or two-year subscription from the website, or pick up a copy in a number of bookshops, including Waterstones Cork, Hodges Figgis, Books Upstairs, Liberties Upstairs, Blackbird Books, and Dubray Grafton St.
