Issue Four

For Issue 4 the journal seeks work which delves into the unreal and the unexpected.

“We welcome anything that looks at the mildly surreal – we want to feel like the rug has been pulled out from under our feet, that all is not what it seems. How you choose to interpret that is up to you – we are not asking for sci fi or weird fiction (although we are not adverse to this!). We are asking for your more playful, mischievous, rule bending and rule breaking pieces – your experimental work.”


Free to enter, contributors will receive a copy of the journal.

All written submissions should be in size 12 font, in Word doc format, max 2,500 words.

Written submissions should be previously unpublished.

All submissions will be anonymised prior to reading so please do not include your name on the document pages.

A personal biography is optional for the moment.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, however please notify An Capall Dorcha if your work is accepted elsewhere before 31 March. 

Visual submissions should be in PNG format (300 dpi). Please include relevant descriptive information (materials, title etc.).

Please send submissions to ancapalldorchajournal@gmail.com with Submission issue 4 followed by the title of your work and your name (Format Submission Issue 4 / TITLE / FIRSTNAMELASTNAME) as the subject.

Deadline for submissions is Monday 16 January.

All submissions will be responded to by 31 March.
