Inis magazine is the flagship publication of Children’s Books Ireland. Each issue contains a rich array of children’s literature articles and features, as well as in-depth reviews of new titles for children and teenagers. Inis takes an Irish perspective on children’s literature issues, placing an emphasis on books published in Ireland or by Irish writers, but the magazine is truly international in its range, outlook and contributors. By combining a substantial archive of print issues with new online content at www.inismagazine.ie, Inis continues to be a key resource for schools, libraries, parents, writers, illustrators and anyone with an interest in children’s books.
Children’s Books in Ireland magazine was first published in 1989. Since that time Children’s Books in Ireland, which changed its name to Inis in 2002, has been the only publication in Ireland solely dedicated to children’s literature and has continued to grow in scale, focus and readership. Over the past twenty-one years, the magazine has become the most important record of the development of Irish children’s literature, with an audience among writers, illustrators, publishers, academics, students and parents both in Ireland and abroad.
Inis means both ‘island’ and ‘tell’ in Irish and is pronounced ‘inn-ish’.
The recently redesigned print edition will be published twice a year and is complemented by its new online home at www.inismagazine.ie, where you will find more exclusive content and reviews as well as regular updates on the world of children’s literature in the Inis magazine blog.
