Four issues have been published to date, with Issue 5 due for release in October 2021. More information is available at www.channelmag.org.
Channel is a new magazine born out of the climate crisis, publishing poetry and prose with an environmentalist perspective.
Our first issue is now available through our online store and through stockists around Ireland.
We believe that humanity’s disengagement from the natural world is one of the great losses of our time, and in the onslaught of climate change we see that disengagement reaching its inevitable conclusion. If Ireland’s history of myths and stories woven from the landscape shows anything, though, it’s that the literary arts have a part to play in rebuilding our relationship with nature.
Our goal at Channel is to provide a space for literary work that fosters re-connection with the natural world. We publish work from Ireland and abroad that displays and celebrates the relationships between plant and animal life, landscape and humanity.
We want words that act as a path, a safe passage wide enough for ideas to flow through. We want words that join human beings and our habitats together.
