Guest Editor for Issue #5

The Burning Bush 2 is pleased to announce that Chicago poet, professor and critic David Gardiner will be the guest editor for issue #5. David is vastly experienced, not only as an editor but as a scholar and teacher of poetry and we’re really excited to have him at the helm for our next edition.

David Gardiner is a native of Chicago. Since 1989, when he attended University College Galway, he has spent probably far too much time in Ireland, teaching at the University of Ulster and also at Trinity College Dublin. While teaching Irish studies at Creighton University in Nebraska, he was the founding editor of An Sionnach: A Journal of Literature, Culture, and the Arts (Creighton University Press) and was also Director of Creighton University Press.

His first collection of poetry, Downstate, was published by Salmon Poetry in 2009. He is working on a new collection and currently occupies the city of broad shoulders.

Submissions for issue #5 of The Burning Bush 2 are now open. Please send no more than 4 poems or 2 pieces of flash fiction to the usual address. No attachments please.
