Ireland’s newest literary journal is launching in Cork this week
They’re one of the best ways to discover new writers.
And if you enjoy getting lost in a literary journal, there’s a brand-new one about to launch in our very own city.
Featuring 29 of the best emerging and established voices in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and visual art, the inaugural issue of The Four-Faced Liar includes an interview with critically acclaimed novelist Danny Denton (All Along the Echo) and brand-new work from Dylan Thomas Prize-nominated Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe.

The bi-annual print journal, inspired by the famed clock at Shandon Tower, will be launched at the Firkin Crane on Friday, January 13th.
The journal is co-founded and edited by Patrick Holloway, Lucy Holme, Stephen Brophy, and Rosie Morris, four Cork-based writers who wanted to magnify Leeside as a cultural capital through the collection while also showcasing exciting national and international creative talent.
“The Four Faced Liar might have its roots firmly embedded in Cork city, but, like the Shandon Bells, it reverberates with stories, accents, and perspectives from both Ireland and further afield,” said Holme.
“This is very much a Cork journal with a global vision.”
The journal has sold out online but limited copies will be on sale at the launch. A second print is in the pipeline and more information on this, and submissions for Issue Two, will be available at the4facedliar.com.
