The Linnet's Wings was founded, in Edgeworthstown, in the Irish Republic, in 2007. Her title was taken from the William Butler Yeats poem, 'The Lake Isle of Innisfree:
' 'Where midnights all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow/And an evening full of the linnet's wings.
She is supported by an international team of editors who are based in: Ireland, UK, Canada, US, and Spain.
'Our aim is to showcase writers and artists whose work stimulates and challenges the sensibility and imagination of our readers, and to provide a seedbed of inspiration for writer/artists and readers both, just as was done by the voices of the past.'
We're delighted to welcome Bruce Harris into 'The Linnet's Wings Team.' We have published his fiction and poetry in past issues of LW, and we reviewed his last poetry chap book in our Autumn 14 issue.
Bruce will work alongside us as a contributing editor, and he'll hold responsibility for our 'New Voices Section,' which we launch this quarter, in the effort, to give voice to and encourage writers who are out there working diligently and have not been published yet or who maybe have a few stories or poems to their credits, but are finding it difficult to get their work heard and published in Literary Journals or Magazines.
To view our word requirements for this section please go to our submission page on: Submission

'In every person's story we find a fragment of our own. For we're all connected by our needs and wants: Personal, cultural, social, and economic. This is a book that asks one to reflect on this while celebrating the ups and downs of love and life, of community and work, of family and its line, and always acknowledging family as landmark, as point of reference, as it builds a young man's tale.
For when we leave the roost and learn to fly it's then we realise that no matter what we're never truly alone as we make and break connections, and if we're lucky we allow each experience to move us on. It's the story of a son, father, husband, lover and friend.'
The Winter 2014 issue is available in print for $18.
