Turas Press is now open for submissions.
This submissions window is open from September 1st – 30th, 2023.
We are only able to read manuscripts sent in during the designated submissions windows, so please do not send us your work outside
Guidlines for when submissions re-open:
We only consider completed work, not work-in-progress. Please do not send multiple versions of your submission – make sure that the draft you send us is the final draft you want to be read.
If you would like to send your poetry or fiction to Turas Press, please send manuscripts, by email only, to:
Please send only one submission in each submissions window.
Poetry: Send your full manuscript in a single Word document, with a covering letter in the body of the email. Please do not send zip files with individual poems in single files – format the whole collection as one document, please.
Novel: Send up to 10,000 words or the first three chapters of your novel and a one- or two-page synopsis, both attached as Word documents, with a covering letter in the body of the email.
Short story collections: Attach three short stories, up to 10,000 words total, as one single Word document, with a covering letter in the body of the email.
In your covering letter include a brief overview of your writing and publications history to date.
Turas Press welcomes submissions of poetry and fiction which are original, imaginative and interesting. We enjoy formal experimentation but appreciate traditional poetry and prose, too. We are open to a wide range of content and thematic preoccupations, including historical themes, contemporary social and political topics, and interior reflection.
Please allow up to eight weeks for a response.
Because of constraints of time, we can’t, unfortunately, give feedback on submissions. Writers who would like editorial input and/or to workshop their poetry or fiction will find useful information from the Irish Writers’ Centre.
