My goal for Sheila-Na-Gig online is to continue to support the work of both established and emerging poets in a crisp, uncluttered space. Poets entering our quarterly poetry contests or full-length manuscript contest should familiarize themselves with our aesthetic.

Sheila-Na-Gig online publishes well-crafted free verse poetry. We especially seek poems with excellent imagery and a strong sense of voice.
