The results of our Poets Meet Politics competition 2014 are now out — see here for details.

Our core contributors are writers who live and work on the Beara peninsula in County Cork, Ireland, but we welcome approaches from anyone who is interested in the kinds of writing that can be found in our Online Anthology—read and (we hope) enjoy! If you are interested in contributing, please see our Submissions page. Feedback is also welcome via the Contact Us page.

For those interested in meeting others on Beara who write, or want to write, there are active writers' groups; if you would like to know more, see the Writers' groups page.

We also organise readings, courses and workshops from time to time; see our Events & Information page for the latest information.

As a small non-profitmaking organisation we run our publications and competitions on very tight margins; if you feel you could support our activities financially, click here.
