ROPES, the literary journal compiled annually by students of the MA in Literature and Publishing at NUI Galway, will be launched by Galway poet Sarah Clancy on Friday 26 April at 5pm in the Jigsaw building on Fairgreen Road, Galway City.
The journal is being launched as part of the Cúirt International Festival of Literature. This is the 21st year of the journal’s publication and the work explores the theme of ‘coming of age’ with a collection of poetry, prose and artwork from an international gathering of writers and artists. Contributors include Moya Cannon, Louis de Paor and Askold Melnyczuk.
The journal is priced at €10. All proceeds go towards Jigsaw Galway, which is a free and confidential support service for young people aged 15–25 living in Galway City and County.
Copies of the journal will be available at the launch, online and in Galway bookshops. For further information on the launch or to order an advance copy of the journal contact the ROPES marketing team at email@example.com.
