Welcome to ROPES
ROPES is a literary journal produced annually by MA students at the University of Galway. We are now working on the journal’s 31st edition! Our team is dedicated to showcasing a broad and inclusive range of work by providing a platform to exhibit literature and art. Our journal has been home to the work of bright, emerging creatives, as well as pieces from more established writers such as Colm Tóibín and Nuala O’Connor.
Each year, we produce an inspired collection in aid of our chosen charity. This year, we will be supporting Galway Rape Crisis Centre, a nonprofit organization that provides support for those affected by sexual violence and abuse, and works to end the cultural and societal tolerance of sexual violence. To find out more about ROPES, submission guidelines, how to help out, and more, explore our ever-growing website and follow us across social media @ropeslitjournal.
