Let the Stories be Told

We are delighted to announce that Skylight 47 has been successful in its application for funding under the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture Small Towns Big Ideas project.

Let the Stories be Told aims to facilitate people who, ordinarily, would not get the opportunity to share their individual story. We want people to find their voice through creative writing and specifically in the forms of poetry, memoir, or short fiction.

Skylight 47 will print a selection of these writings in a special issue of the poetry paper, and invite contributors to read their submissions at a launch event. This special issue, dedicated to the themes of Language, Landscape, and Migration will be given to each of the contributors, and made available free of charge to the general public.

Copies will be widely distributed throughout Galway City and County in conjunction with the local library network to ensure ease of access and maximization of potential readership.


Launch of Issue 10

We’re delighted to announce the arrival of Issue 10! We’ll be launching in Galway City Library on 31 May at 6.30pm, and would love to see you there.

Our launcher is Jacqueline Saphra, poet, editor, agitator, teacher, organiser and word-enthusiast, who will also be reading on the night along with several of our contributors. You can find out more about her here.

Issue 10, here we come!
