Skein Press was established in June 2017. We are Fionnuala Cloke, Gráinne Shanley O’Toole,  and Melatu Uche Okorie. Fionnuala worked in publishing for several years before going freelance as an editor and translator. Gráinne is a writer and editor as well as a community worker. Melatu is a writer and has had works published in numerous anthologies. She is currently studying for a PhD in Education at Trinity College, Dublin.

We are avid readers who noticed a gap in Irish publishing from authors from an Black and minority ethnic background. Cultural diversity in Ireland has grown rapidly in the last 20 years and the Irish publishing landscape can only be enriched by making this writing available. As well as writers from a Black and minority ethnic background, we hope to foster writers whose work is fresh and thought-provoking and features outlooks and experiences not often represented in Irish publishing.

    1. Dear Sarah,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Your stories can be any length. If you are publishing a collection please do send us two stories for review. Kind regards, Gráinne

  1. I have written Book of Muckross . It explains that the first inhabitants on the Isles of Britain and Ireland were black and came by boat from Senegal up to 50,000 years. It is supported and referenced by facts . I would like to share my thoughts with interested members and readers and will be glad to meet your representatives for that purpose in mind.
