An Online Literary Magazine


Welcome to Crossways online literary magazine.

First, the inspiration behind the name:

Literature (and life) is all about the crossing of paths. When we read we encounter other minds, sometimes for the first time, sometimes not. A life without these encounters is a poor one. We all know that. Now that you’ve found us, we hope that you will stay and engage with some of the minds that are represented here.

Crossways publishes both literary poetry and short fiction. We welcome submissions from new and established authors, anywhere in the world, as long as they are writing in English. We are based in Ireland, so we have a particular interest in any writing with an Irish connection.

Take a look at our February issue!

Crossways is currently looking for book reviewers for future issues. If you are interested, please send cover letter and bio to Please note, as an Irish based magazine, we are only looking for reviewers who are living in Ireland.
