June Editorial

Dear Reader(s),

Welcome to the June issue of The Bohemyth!

For those of you not aware, former editor Alice Walsh has returned to the team, once again bringing her keen eye for fantastic fiction and beautiful photography.

We received an abundance of varied submissions, each equally interesting in their own right. Thank you to everyone who submitted their work and for making our decisions so hard. This is our first issue working together as a trio and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

In fiction, we have stories about obsession, courtesy of Julie Morrissy and Sheila Armstrong, and loss, courtesy of Kit Caless and Emily McCrary.

In poetry, we have poems that cover a wide range of topics and emotions – from the frustrations that come from the everyday mundanity of life, to finding answers to some of the big questions in the little moments, to love in the Internet age – courtesy of Cassandra de Alba, Zoe Dzunko, Emily O’Neill, Molly McGhee, Shane Mac an Bhaird, Natalie Chin, and Holly Isemonger.

We have two essays, different in style and subject matter but equally affecting, courtesy of Richard Whelan and Clara Lipfert.

Photography comes courtesy of Jenny Hauser, in the form of three beautiful black and white photographs.

One final bit of news: The Bohemyth will be attending ‘Circa Words 2014′ at the Irish Writers’ Centre on Saturday, June 14. We would love to see some of our readers come to see us (and other progressive literary journals) and say hi. Details HERE.

To keep up to date with all our news, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

We hope you enjoy our June issue.

The Bohemyth: Read it, enjoy it, recommend it.
