Silver Apples Magazine
From the Editor
Silver Apples Magazine is a new Irish e-zine founded by friends and long-time collaborators Alex Dunne and Gráinne O’Brien who were looking for a new project to undertake together. Both Alex and Gráinne are English literature graduates, voracious readers, and aspiring writers with previous editing and publishing experience. They felt that collaborating on this literary magazine together was the next logical step. After various in-depth discussions over endless cups of tea, Silver Apples Magazine was born. Alex and Gráinne were very emphatic about what they wanted in a magazine. To provide a platform to show off new and emerging talent alongside more established authors and poets. They both know that it can be difficult for fledgling writers to get a start, and how easily discouraged they can become. It is their hope that Silver Apples Magazine can provide the opportunity for these writers to reach a wider audience. As they state in their submission guidelines, “What makes Silver Apples Magazine different is our desire to publish unknown and unpublished artists and creators. There is no need for you to have a previous publication history to submit to us – whether you are a seasoned author or a photographer just finding their feet, as long as you have a vision or an idea we want to hear from you!”
Silver Apples Magazine is now accepting submissions for its inaugural issue on the theme “Modern Mythologies” in the following categories: Short fiction Creative non-fiction Poetry (all forms) One act plays Photography Digital artwork and illustrations Comics

I am a retired Wall Streeter. In another life, I wrote speeches and position papers for a US Congressperson.
I am now devoting time to the literary scene. I’ve sold several short commentary pieces. Fiction is another planet to me but am 25K into my first novel.
I hope with all my heart Silver Apples flourishes. My grand -daughter danced in the Irish Dancing World Championships held in Killarney in 2012. Would you like an article on a first time visitor’s reflections of the event and the surroundings?
PS Nice title — my favorite Yeats poem!
