What’s new?

Submissions are now open for the 2 Meter Review Anthology: Volume II

Created by Beau Williams and Hazel Hogan, the 2 Meter Review is an anthology publishing poetry and photography, described as a ‘working-class grassroots publication motivated by the connection and the elevation of Irish and American voices.’ 

Submissions for poetry and photography for the second edition are now open. It will be published digitally with physical copies for sale. Poems and photographs of any topic will be considered. While 2 Meter Review is a reference to the pandemic, neither poetry, prose or photography need to have a pandemic theme. All submissions must be sent to 2meterreview@gmail.com.

Beau Williams is an American poet, workshop facilitator, and spoken word artist based in Dublin. Having built his career on the road, and performed in 46 states across America and in many countries across Europe, he has teamed up with Dublin spoken word poet and writer Hazel Hogan whose poetry is part of the Irish Poetry Reading Archive in the UCD digital library. Her poem ‘Grangegorman’ is also on the recommended list to be studied as part of the Junior Certificate English curriculum.

Once the deadline (25th of November) passes, expect about TWO weeks before you hear a response. If one of your poems/photographs is selected for the anthology, we will contact you for permission to use it. You will then have ONE week to respond with a confirmation. If we receive no confirmation within that one week, we will remove your submission from the anthology. This year, the books will be in both digital and physical format, and due to the extra cost, we sadly won’t be able to pay our contributors a fee this year. We hope to be able to do so in the future once we are a bit more financially stable. 

We, at 2 Meter Review, are thrilled to work with you to bring these artists together and elevate both Irish and American voices. 

Stay safe. Happy writing!
– Beau and Hazel
