About words

The Blue Nib is about serving the literary community with a focus on both the reader and the writer. Since 2015 we have provided a platform that features work from some of the top names in poetry, fiction, journalism and creative nonfiction. With 43 issues under our belt, we now publish in print quarterly and continue to publish digitally every single day of the week, bringing our readers engaging and thought provoking articles as well as short fiction, reviews and poetry.

About community

The Blue Nib is about writers. Over the last nine issues, since the Blue Nib has transitioned to print as well as digital, we have published the work of over one and a half thousand writers, including some of the worlds leading poets and authors. But our focus remains on the emerging writers, the new voices in fiction and the exciting new poets.

About Partnership

The Blue Nib team are all volunteers who rely on the generosity of our readers and our contributors to keep us publishing. In return, The Blue Nib offer a safe platform and an opportunity to emerging writers to have there work featured alongside well established names. Since 2015, The Blue Nib have returned over  €12,000 to the writing community in fees, prize money and direct financial support.
