Ruth McKee’s wonderful zine of interconnected, inspirational writing, photography, artwork and more takes on a special flavour this time in the HOME issue. Stellar contributors have gathered to contribute to this new issue.  Featuring Jan Carson N Ní Chonchúir Nuala Ní Chonchúir / Nuala O’Connor Alan McMonagle Kevin Higgins Stephanie Conn Kerrie O’ Brien Lisa Frank Liz Quirke Ingy Pops Lauren Foley Cath Bore Niall McArdle Denise Blake Susan Millar DuMars John Walsh Martin Malone Sarah Buckley – Music Marina Burnel Photography Sanda Semeika Joanna Śmielowska Jay Merrill Marta Zamarska Peter Zelei Images David Lee Artist @Portia Munsen Natalia Berglund Gillian Hamill

The issue is live here

In Ruth’s words “At the time of publication, over three thousand children are without somewhere permanent to live in Dublin. In this special extended issue, writers and artists respond to the theme of home. If you’d like to donate something to Inner City Helping Homeless, you can do so here.”

Please enjoy the wonderful pieces in this issue and take the opportunity to contribute to helping people in desperate circumstances, a heartbreaking and unnecessary national scandal.
