Read last year’s winning story in the Irish Times here:
Crossways is a recently launched literary magazine based in Cork, Ireland. We publish short stories and poetry.
We like well written stories that stimulate the intellect and imagination. Whether it be traditional, modern or experimental we will read it.
We are especially interested in new and emerging authors.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer payment for work at this stage: our goal is to get your name out there to attract other publishers.
We aim to publish four issues a year, beginning with our Spring issue in late April.
We like to say yes but that doesn’t mean we will publish anything!
The word limit is 3,000 words. Please submit no more than five stories.
