An Online Literary Magazine


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. Our aim is to publish lots of poetry with some short fiction.

Submissions are free 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

Please submit up to five poems or short stories. Short stories should have a maximum of 3,000 words.

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.
