The beautiful new issue of Bare Hands is now online!

It features stunning work from Malta, Ireland, Pittsburgh, New York, British Columbia and the UK.

Read it here –

We are going to start making podcasts for the journal and I would love for all of you to be involved! Simply email us an mp3 file by June 30th. It doesn’t have to be you reading it (poets can by shy) as long as it’s a nice clear recording. Include the text of the poem in the email like you would with a normal submission. See our full submission guidelines here.

Our Bare Hands Competition postcards have arrived fresh from the printers and we will be sending them to independent bookshops around the world this week – click here to read the winning entries and see where you can pick one up for free!

We have recently joined Pinterest so do follow us if you can.

Finally I would like to say congratulations to Sarah Clancy, Colm Keegan, Peadar O’ Donoghue and Afric McGlinchey who have all appeared in Bare Hands and have all launched debut poetry collections with Salmon in the last few weeks. Well done all of you!

I am delighted by how much Bare Hands has grown in such a short time and I’d like to do as much as possible to keep promoting our poets. If any of you have poetry collections coming out, or any other kinds of lovely writing news, do let me know and we’ll mention it on Facebook and Twitter.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Kerrie O’ Brien
