Banshee, a print literary journal from Ireland, is now seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction for their fourth issue, to be published in the spring of 2017. The deadline for submissions is October 31, and all authors published in the journal will receive payment, as well as a copy of the magazine.

As an international literary journal, Banshee publishes writing by authors from Ireland and around the world. They like literature that is captivating, current, and accessible to a broad audience. They publish writing in all forms and styles, exploring a wide range of topics and themes. To get a sense of what they are looking for, you can read samples of past issues online.

Banshee is published twice a year, and each issue contains work from around 25 contributors. Poets may submit up to six poems, 40 lines or fewer each. Fiction writers may submit up to two stories, 1,500 to 5,000 words, or up to four pieces of flash fiction, 1,000 words or fewer. Nonfiction authors may submit up to two essays, 1,500 to 5,000 words. A sort biography, 50 words or fewer, should accompany all submissions. Each author may submit work in only one category.
