The Editors of Irish Pages/Duillí Éireann– Chris Agee, Cathal Ó Searcaigh and Kathleen Jamie (the new permanent Scottish Editor) – are currently assembling the above issue. In addition to literary criticism of the traditional variety, there will be a particular focus on the critical spirit in all genres, whether non-fiction essays, literary journalism, memoir, travel writing, poetry, fiction or other work of imaginative distinction. By “Criticism,” we mean, of course, in equal measure, both the brandy of praise and the poteen of critique. Submissions on contemporary Irish fiction, global politics and personalities, nationalism, the mass media in Ireland and Britain, cyberspace, ecological themes, and the economic order are especially welcome. Work submitted in Scots and Irish, as well as literary translation from any culture, is also encouraged. Following the journal’s usual procedure, some of the work included will be independent of the cover title. A number commissions may be arranged, and potential contributors interested in making a proposal should contact Chris Agee immediately through the postal, telephone and/or email details given below.
