Literary Magazine


Crossways is now closed to submissions

Although we will read anything (almost), we especially want to hear from new and emerging writers who are looking to break into the world of published authors.

Submissions are free and every author we publish gets a free copy of the magazine but we can’t afford payment for work at this stage. We hope to help get your name out there and interest a publisher who can offer you payment for your work.

If you want to submit, please email cover letter and put bio (third person) and pic and your poems or stories in a single attachment (doc.x). Send to

If you are sending short-fiction please address it to our short-fiction editor, Shane O’Neill.  All poetry submissions should be addressed to our poetry editor, Anne Daly.  Review requests, queries etc. should be addressed to general editor, David Jordan.

Please submit up to five poems or short stories. Short stories should have a maximum of 3,000 words. We aim to respond to every submission within three months.

All authors retain copyright for their work.  

Crossways is now accepting submissions throughout the year. 

If you have a book you’d like us to review, please send us a bio and a summary of the work. Do not send us a copy of the book unless requested.

If you are interested in reviewing for Crossways, please send cover letter and bio to  Please note, we are only looking for reviewers who are living in Ireland.
