Boyne Berries 10

Battle of the Books done and dusted, Swift Festival finished and filed. Second draft of Irish Revolution Sligo book done - only 3,467 words too many- and first draft of talk and presentation at Ballymote Heritage Weekend done.

So a gap to have a quick look at how preparations for Boyne Berries 10 are going. Submissions, prose and poetry, coming in with a remarkable number of writers obeying the rules - maximum of three poems, attachment and in body of email, bio and postal address included.

We hope to make this 10th issue and its launch special. We haven't finalised plans yet but we are hoping for a larger format page, a colour cover and some colour and black and white pictures, images, illustrations inside.

There's still time to submit. Deadline 31 July. Check out the guidelines here and please follow them!
