Issue Five Contributors

After an increasingly difficult read through of all the fantastic submissions for Issue Five: New Writers Edition, our readers have finally decided on our shortlist. We would like to thank all of the writers and artists that submitted. Well done to each of you, we were (once again) blown away by your work. 

For Issue Five, we wanted to select those that were not only bohemian and Wexford-centric, but writers that were new to our literary scene or new to writing in general. As editor, I am overjoyed with the amount of young people that submitted to this issue. The Wexford Bohemian Issue Five is sure to be another brilliant read. 

Beir bua agus le meas,

Alanna Hammel, Editor
