Channel is a literary journal born out of the climate crisis, publishing poetry and prose that fosters connection between people and planet. Conceived in 2019, on the day of the first global climate strike that year, it responds to a need for new narratives surrounding nature in the public consciousness and seeks to build a community of Irish and international writers, artists and readers whose work is grounded in ecological concern.
Channel is edited by Cassia Gaden Gilmartin and Elizabeth Murtough, with assistance from 2023 Publishing Intern S.R. Westvik, and funded by the Arts Council. Its print issues are published biannually, in April and October of each year, with additional material available online.
