ROPES Literary Journal
ROPES Literary Journal was first published in 1993 at NUI Galway. Early editions included critical essays, focusing on literature, art and politics. The journal developed gradually as an anthology, showcasing works of prose, poetry, artwork, photography and non-fiction. In my role as Managing Editor, I oversaw all teams (Marketing, Publicity, Design and Sales) and worked with the Editorial team to choose submissions and worked with writers to develop their novel extracts, short stories, essays, poetry and flash fiction.
