I just wanted to let you know about the beautiful new Irish themed (Swift) issue of the Chicago based mag Literary Orphans. Including fiction, essays and artwork from a wealth of Irish contributors, it’s beautifully put together and was launched at Easter. In conjunction with Editor in Chief Mike Joyce, this Irish issue was guest edited by Westmeath native (and now California resident) James Claffey whose fabulous debut short story collection Blood a Cold Blue was released earlier this year. His editorial tells us everything he is glad this issue is not as well as extolling the pleasures of what is it.

You can read the Literary Orphans Swift Ireland and the Irish issue here and my Fish shortlisted story (All that Thinking) that James and Mike kindly included here.

Included in the magazine is an interview with the vibrant and innovative The Penny Dreadful lit mag. They are currently looking for submissions for Issue 4 so check out their style and consider the submission guidelines. The submission deadline is May 4th.
