ROPES is a literary journal published by the students of the MA in Literature and Publishing at NUIG and this year is our 22nd birthday. Each year ROPES donates all of its proceeds to a worthy charity. This year’s theme is “Home”.

ROPES 2014 will be launched by award-winning novelist Niamh Boyce, as part of the Cúirt International Festival of Literature. The book launch will take place on the 10th of April at 4pm in the COPE charity shop, on St. Augustine’s Street (off Shop Street). Admission to this Cúirt Festival event is free, all are welcome and there will be refreshments served, alongside readings from ROPES 2014.

Contributors to this literary journal include Alvy Carragher, Kate Ennals, Kevin Higgins and Ruth Quinlan. ROPES 2014 is published by the students of the MA in Literature and Publishing course at NUI Galway.

The journal is priced at €10. All proceeds are going towards COPE Galway which is a support service for those dealing with homelessness and domestic abuse, living in Galway city and county.



Copies of the journal will be available at the launch, in Galway bookshops and by clicking the link below.
