Submissions invited for Boyne Berries

Submissions will be accepted for Boyne Berries 6 (September 2009) and Boyne Berries 7 (March 2010) during May, June and July 2009. Closing date 31 July. Material for the two issues will be chosen from these submissions.
Poetry: Send no more than three poems. Each poem should be 70 lines or under.
Prose: Stories etc should be under 1000 words.
Poems and prose should be original, previously unpublished and not currently
submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.

You must include a brief biography (two or three lines) as you would like it to appear in the magazine. You must also include a postal address for contributors copy.

Submit your work by email to: This is our preferred method. However we will accept submissions by post to: Boyne Writers , 33 Avondale Drive, Trim, Co. Meath, Ireland. Include an email address where possible.

What amazes me each submission period is the number of writers who don't follow the simple rules. We ask for three poems only, some send more - up to twenty. We ask for a brief bio, some send none, others send half a page. One would think that writers who presumably take great care with their written work would also ensure that they follow the guidelines.
