About Us

Flight Writing was created by amateur Irish writers to provide a safe space for new, experimental work. We want to communicate the Irish experience from a new perspective.

We are, like many of you, recent Arts graduates working in shops and banks; writing in our spare time, suspended in post-college limbo. We’re the JobBridge generation interning until the dole drives us abroad. We’re the heirs of the bailout who don’t know what else to do, so we write.

We accept poetry in different languages for those who find the English language limiting. Of course, we can only include the languages the current editors speak (English, Irish, Spanish, German)

We are an all-female organisation that does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, ability or sexual preference.
