Content-wise, Causeway/Cabhsair aims to provide an outlet for: writers working in the minority languages of Ireland and Scotland (including Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Scots and their various dialects), as well as works in English; up-and-coming writers, whether they are a student or not; and, finally, high-quality work from established writers. So far, those published include: James Kelman, Paul Muldoon, Sheena Blackhall, Aonghas MacNeacail, Alan Spence, Rody Gorman, Niall O'Gallagher, Donald Meek, Alison Lang, Wayne Price, Ewan Morrison, Celia de Fréine, Carl MacDougall, Donald S. Murray and Diana Hendry.
The magazine also contains reviews and discussions related to Irish and Scottish literature and culture, which have been published in English and Gaelic.
Our cover images have showcased the work of celebrated photographers and artists, including Calum Colvin, Laura Crockatt and Alex Boyd.
Although its name suggests a focus on the cultural connections between Ireland and Scotland, Causeway/Cabhsair is not exclusive to Irish and Scottish writers, but also includes work which engages with these countries’ cultures on an international level. This global outlook may be reflected in our subscribers, who currently range as far and wide as Africa, Canada and Japan.
Causeway/Cabhsair accepts submissions of up to six poems, and up to 3,500 words of prose. Please email your work as a Microsoft Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
An annual subscription is £12 for two copies of the magazine. To subscribe: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/riiss/publications/causeway.shtml
