Call for Submissions

The Burning Bush 2 is now accepting submissions for our third issue, due in July. In #3 we will feature new and emerging poets from Dublin and are especially interested in writers who are working towards a first collection or have recently published a first collection. If you think you fit the bill and would like to have your work considered, please send us no more than 4 poems in the body of an email to The closing date for receipt of submissions is 10th June.

During this period, we will, of course, also accept submissions from all other geographic locations. Before sending your work, we recommend that you check out the guidelines and also have a read of issues one and two to get a feel for the magazine.
