“The world has turned into a big Ulster …”
Seamus Heaney, in a letter to John Montague (circa 2012)
The Editors of Irish Pages/Duillí Éireann, Chris Agee and Cathal Ó Searcaigh, are currently assembling the above issue. There will be a particular focus on Israel-Palestine, the wider Middle East, the Muslim world, and the pattern of contemporary geopolitics; but the issue will also include poetry, non-fiction essays, literary reportage, memoir and fiction relevant directly or indirectly to the interrelated leitmotif of the three cover themes. Submissions from writers and translators (either from Ireland or overseas) with first-hand experience of the cultures, regions and narratives in question are especially welcome. Following the journal’s usual procedure, some of the work included will be independent of the cover title. A number of 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.
