An avid reader of the short story, I established the Long Story, Short Journal in 2012 in order to provide a home for longer work. At that time, few Irish publications accepted submissions over 3000 words. Since then, the journal has continued to showcase Irish talent alongside contributions from writers in the USA, Australia and the UK. Unique in format, the Long Story, Short Journal is free to read online, and publishes one story and one photograph every month, in order to provide the contributors with plenty of time for promoting their work exclusively.
