Boyne Berries submissions for 1916 theme

The submission period for Boyne Berries 19, which will be a special issue commemorating the centenary of the 1916 Rising is open. The magazine will  be published in late March of 2016.

Deadline: Sunday, 03rd January, 2016. 

From Orla Fay, the editor of Boyne Berries:
What does 1916 mean to you now? Can you picture life one hundred years ago? Is romantic Ireland dead and gone? What would those figures, those celebrated heroes of our past make of Ireland today if they could step out from the shadows? Is this a time to truly reflect? I don't want to put words in your mouth but I'd love to know what you think, what you feel, what you imagine...

I am keen to read work from writers in the Meath area but national and international submissions are also welcome.
