About Nothing Substantial

Nothing Substantial is a literary print publication based in Dublin, Republic of Ireland. It is targeted at people who wish to circulate their art while giving back. We publish work that challenges our perceptions of literary and conceptual norms - work that makes us sit up and listen.

We are a charity literary magazine. All proceeds from sales of our magazine at each launch are donated to a charity of the editors’ choice, aiding social and political causes close to our hearts. Further proceeds from online orders placed after launch events will be split between donations and funding the production of our magazine.

The Nothing Substantial team consists of two co-editors, Caoimhe Donnelly and Christopher Joyce. We aim to produce at least two issues a year. Please note we do not give feedback on unsuccessful submissions.
