The Madrigal


24 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

the madrigal is a poetry publication that aspires to produce bodies of work that are transient, emotive, delicate, and familiar in their capacity to evoke emotion and elicit a response from their reader. based in dublin, we, the editors, feel a deep and abiding connection to the thematic beauty that is the expanse of irish poetry, and aim to establish a collective of work that shares in the homeliness, joy, transience, and sadness to which poetry at its most raw can convey. the madrigal is a space for exploration, introspection, warmth, and effervescence, both to first time poets, seasoned vets, and everyone else in between! our poetry will be nostalgic, accessible, and deeply intimate –– a distinct and recognized feeling of home, always. begun in dublin by two history and politics students, the madrigal is the culmination of a mutual love and fascination with poetry and publication –– a natural move towards new adventures and perspectives on the literary process. we are so excited to cultivate this publication, and cannot wait to share it with you all! we hope that the soft and salient space of this journal will reflect the beautiful, breathtaking literary talent which contributes to it, fostered and amalgamated under the title of the madrigal.
