Issue 14 Available Now

Here’s a preview of the cover of our next issue, with fabulous artwork by Judith Brandon – see inside for more of her beautiful paintings. You can buy your copy here.

We’re still having to launch by Zoom, of course, but at least that means more of you can be part of it. As always we’ll be coming to you with the help of Over The Edge.

Here’s the details:

Announcing our Launcher

Poet Grace Wells will be launching Issue 14 for us on Thursday 13 May at 6.30pm via Zoom, presented as always by Over The Edge. We are delighted to have her!

We’re hoping to be joined by lots of our readers from around the world.

You can join the Over The Edge Zoom meeting here and the meeting ID is 738 901 3549.

We’re looking forward to it and hope you are too.

New Price

To all our lovely readers, we’re very sorry to have to announce a small price rise from €5 to €6. We use the wonderful Newspaper Club in Scotland for our printing – nobody in Ireland will print the small quantities we require – and the price of delivery has gone up because of costs associated with Brexit.

We really hope you will continue to support us and enjoy Skylight 47. Issue 14 is in progress!

Submission Window Open

Issue 14 will be launched in Spring 2021, and we are now seeking submissions for the next two months. You can find more information about how to submit here.

We are also adding more back issues in PDF format to give you some scrumptious reading through the dark months of winter. You can find these back issues here.



We had a fantastic Zoom launch of Issue 13 on Thursday, with over 100 participants at one point. Our readers were excellent, as were their poems. There was a thoughtful and interesting launch by Jane Robinson, and a beautiful reading of her work.

We’re very nearly sold out of copies, so thank you to all of those of you who have taken the trouble to support us. We can now have confidence in producing an Issue 14!

Countdown to Launch

We would like to thank everyone who has bought copies of Issue 13 before the launch – we are so grateful for your support. As of yesterday, there were only 37 copies left!

When we first decided to publish a physical rather than virtual version of the newspaper, we thought we would have to reduce the number of copies. Because of our pre-sales, we were able to go ahead with the usual run. We should have known we could rely on you, our loyal readers!
