Chattahoochee Review, Special Focus: Ireland

Irishindex“The Chattahoochee Review is a literary journal sponsored by Georgia Perimeter College. Appearing regularly since 1981, we appeal to the educated general public for our readership and over the years have expanded our focus to include both international readers and writers. Although our roots are in the South and we publish important writers such as William Gay, George Singleton, and Natasha Trethewey, we also publish writers from other regions of the U.S. and other countries such as China, Denmark, France, and Mexico. We are committed to exploring literature in translation and to writers who transgress borders, cultural and otherwise.”

I’ve just received my copy of  the new “Special Focus: Ireland” issue of the Chattahoochee Review and it’s only gorgeous, so it is! The content is gloriously eclectic. There’s stories from Mary Morrissey, Nuala Ní Chonchuír, and David Mohan; poetry from Kevin Higgins and Matthew Sweeney, among others; plays by Nancy Harris and John McManus; and artwork from Gavin Lavelle.

My short story “Ship Out on the Sea” also features, which was inspired in part by this song from the Be Good Tanyas:

  Thanks to Anna Schachner and team for putting together such a lovely issue! I’m delighted to be part of it. You can order your copy by subscribing here.
