We are fascinated by Darkness and how it is represented. Deep Water is a haven for those who write about and produce artworks interpreting Darkness.


Works which engage with the psychological and physical aspects of the darker side of the human condition will feature on this site, and in our publication: Deep Water Literary Journal.


The personality of Deep Water will develop over time, but it will always strive to champion Dark Writing and Art.


Deep Water Literary Journal is currently an ONLINE publication only.

We are based in south-west County Cork, Ireland.
