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 are pleased to announce the launch of our new Portfolio Websites. They have been designed with writers in mind, and our current website is based on their design. If you like our presentation pop in over there and view what's on offer.

The Blind Man and the Elephant by John Godfrey Saxe
It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.
