Boundless & Bare presents BND, Ireland's first and only spoken word magazine created to document the Irish spoken word scene - everything from poetry and storytelling to comedy, hip/hop and theatre. Each issue features articles, interviews, essays and reviews.

Issue 1 was published in February 2019. We are currently working on Issue 2 with a launch date soon to be released November 2019.

Issue 2 of BND will feature interviews by internationally acclaimed spoken word artists Shane Koyczan and Andrea Gibson, spoken word in Irish libraries, a series of accounts on the History of Spoken Word in Ireland and a breakdown of the best spoken word events happening all around the country with reviews on new shows and essays on topical issues.

We greatly appreciate your support and your help to raise funds for production costs. Boundless & Bare is a self-funded agency set up for the promotion and representation of spoken word in Ireland.
