gorse 11: submission call

Richard Serra

For issue 11, we are seeking essays, short stories, poetry, and interviews that explore the theme of borders.

With its roots in Compass Lines, a writing exchange project conceived and produced by gorse poetry editor Christodoulos Makris for the Irish Writers Centre in 2016, this North/South issue will be an artistic and cultural response to the current climate and idea of borders, both real and imagined, and not limited to Ireland, but exploring the UK, as well as North America/South America, northern and southern hemispheres.

‘Like all walls it was ambiguous, two faced. What was inside it and what was outside it depended upon which side you were on.’
– Ursula K Le Guin, The Dispossessed

We are accepting submissions from 18th¬†October until 15th November 2017, for this issue: info [at] gorse [dot] ie, with ‘Print’ in the subject line.¬†Any work sent outside of these dates will go unread. Submissions will reopen again in February. You can familiarise yourself with the journal and what we publish here.
