Crannog Magazine Launch and Submissions

Friday 1 March sees the launch of the 32nd issue of Crannóg in The Crane Bar, Sea Rd, Galway at 6.30 pm.. Over 100 pages packed with stories and poems and still only €6. These launches are very friendly, enjoyable events. Crannóg was the first magazine to publish a poem of mine so I have a soft spot for them.

There will be readings by some of the contributors at the launch and, for those who don't want to go home, there will be music by The Molly Hicks at 9.30pm. All upstairs at The Crane.

Each issue of Crannóg is now available for the Kindle Reader. You can download issue 32 here. You can also have a free Look Inside! Of course then you'll want to download the full issue, won't you!

Submissions for Crannóg 33, the summer 2013 issue, open on 1 March and close 31 March. They have reduced the submission time for each issue to one month which means submissions are not tied up for  long and a decision will be reached quickly. An idea for Boyne Berries!

They end with a plea: Please, please, please read full submission rules HERE! I can understand. It's amazing how many writers submit work without following the basic rules, number of items submitted, length and format, include short bio and postal address.
