Crossways was set up in January, 2018, by author David Jordan. Since graduating with an MA in English from UCC in 2013, David has published a collection of verse, a collection of short stories and a novella, details of which can be found here.
We are interested in writing that has beauty, power and depth.
Poetry can exist in either verse or prose and it is our role to discover it.
We believe that poetry shouldn’t clarify, rather it should convey a sense of the mystery of the human imagination.
An interplay of light and dark, set to music.
We will read everything that is sent to us and we aim to respond quickly. We like to say yes but this doesn’t mean we will publish anything.
“I can’t think of a case where poems changed the world, but what they do is they change people’s understanding of what’s going on in the world.”
