Welcome to Minus 9 Squared's shiny, new, online home.

Hello and welcome to M9S's new online home. It's here that we will put up all news and information for upcoming issues, exhibitions being run by submitters and past submitters and any other work and arts news that we see fit to put up. Which is almost everything.

We are branching out and hoping to appeal to the Arts collectives and groups around the country and further to see M9S as a really useful tool to get your word across. To that end, we ask you and everyone you know to come see the site, use us to get the word out and help us to do what we came here to do.

Enjoy the new site.

Who We Are, Where We Come From...

Minus 9 Squared is a literary zine venture of biblical proportions. Well, no. That’s a bit dramatic really, isn’t it?

But dramatic is good. We quite like dramatic here at M9S so feel free to dramatise the heck out of things.

A few basic details about Minus 9 Squared:

1. We’re free. For dinner, drinks, cinema, whatever, we’re always free. Details for attaining our free self will come in due course, i.e. – when we have something to publish.

2. We’re based in the town of Wexford, on the south-east coast of Ireland, where the craic is mighty and everything else is just present. We will, however, accept submissions from all corners of the globe. Over-seas, underseas, beside the sea, in the sea, or just on plain ol’ dry land with no sea in sight. We want to hear from you even if you’re from Mars.

3. We’re looking to gather and showcase talent in every and any artistic discipline. If you write, draw, design, photograph or have any other such talent then we’re dying to see it. (I’m personally still looking for someone who can juggle with their feet so please fulfill that dream, someone).

4. The next issue is fixed for a date far off in the distance that we can’t quite read clearly yet, we think it says something like “AGST” but we can’t draw any conclusions yet.

5. If anyone wishes to be affiliated with the site in any capacity, please email me at: minus9squared@gmail.com

6. Anyone with exhibitions, readings, plays or any other such event coming up please let us know and we will do our best to put the word out via this website.

Keep checking back on this site for updates and details of forthcoming issues. Until then, get creative!
