Set up in May 2019 by Sinéad Creedon and Orla Murphy, we are a Dublin-based print journal, hoping to publish your creative work. We are focused on the idea of sonder, the self, and others.
Thanks for joining us.
If you’re thinking, “huh what’s sonder eh ye arseholes making up words,” it’s that existential feeling you get when you’re walking down the street or sitting in the pub and are overcome by the realization that everyone you pass is just out there doing their own thing, thinking their own thoughts and living their own lives. It’s kinda freaky.
We want this journal to reflect everyday people and how extraordinary each individual is. Sonder doesn’t have to be a solitary feeling, which is why we want to put it all together in this little haven for individuality. We want people to open up this publication and find themselves reflected in other people’s work.
We publish short stories, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, all based around the individual and how we interact with each other. We want you, the writer, to get into the mind of someone sitting across from you on the Dart home, or the fella who just asked to bum a lighter, or even the Aisling wearing runners to work.
Submission guidelines are in the Submissions tab. Have a gander. Slide into our DM’s. See you on the flipside.
