Prominent Irish literary magazine Crannóg will publish its milestone 30th issue this June. Crannóg 30 will be launched on June 29 in The Crane Bar, Sea Road, Galway at 6.30 pm with a host of readings and musical entertainment.
Crannóg Magazine boasts a vibrant blend of local Irish writing and the best of international writing talent, which creates a feast of varying styles, perspectives and cultures for readers within each issue. The magazine will later this year celebrate ten years of providing a national and international platform for Irish writers and bringing international standard writing to a local audience.
From humble beginnings Crannóg has grown to be one of Ireland’s most established and trusted literary magazines, receiving submissions and subscriptions not only from all over Ireland but from all over the world.
Crannóg prides itself on providing the highest standard of literary content. This high standard has been internationally recognised by the inclusion of Crannóg published pieces in prestigious international publications.
Forward Book of Poetry for 2010 included the poem “Along the Coast” by Scottish poet Deborah Moffatt, which had appeared in Crannóg 18, summer 2008; and David Musgrave’s poem Phantom Limb from Crannóg 17, spring 2008, appeared in the collection The Best Australian Poems 2009, edited by Robert Adamson.
Crannóg Magazine was set up in 2002 by members of Galway Writers’ Workshop and has since been published tri-annually to great acclaim. It now continues to go from strength to strength as one of the longest running and most respected of Irish literary magazines.
