Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Bealtaine aims to be a space in which voices can speak freely without fear, a store of differing views that can act like a rebuttal to the sometimes confusing, irreverent world we live in. Bealtaine is a compilation of the work of cutting-edge artists from all different backgrounds and communities. We make it our mission to deliver the very best of Irish writing and art, which can strike us with unmistakable urgency, statement, and sentiment. We take submissions from all over the world, but we especially value submissions which can capture the modern Irish verve. We’re looking for submissions from people who are unafraid to push the boundaries of art, and in return we will endeavour to give your voice a home.

Submissions Policy
A person can submit in each category but the following guidelines apply per submitter in any given round: For short stories: we can only accept 1 written piece of fiction up to 5,000 words maximum. For poems: we can only accept up to 3 poems of no more than 50 lines each. For essays/op-eds: we can only accept 1 written essay of up to 1,500 words maximum. Photographs and artwork: we can only accept up to 10 pieces of photography or art from submitters at any given time. Please also ensure that your work is in digital format from one of the following file type: JPG., PNG., SVG., PDF. Please note we cannot accept simultaneous submissions or a piece of writing or art that has appeared in a major publication in the past. Doing so would take content away from those publications. Anything from an artist’s or author’s own website, blog, or social media is acceptable. Due to the high volume of submissions in any given submissions round we won’t be able to provide individual feedback for each submission. For those who wish to remain anonymous or appear under a pseudonym, we would appreciate if submitters would provide their details to the editors for traceability and authenticity reasons, after which we would be delighted to publish them anonymously to respect that person’s right to privacy. All work must be original work of the author or artist. After publication, copyright remains with the author or artist.
