Crannóg: Now Open To Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | July 17, 2013

Crannóg is a print literary journal based out of Galway, Ireland that publishes work from all over the world. They are established and respected and they just re-opened to submissions for a month. They are only open to submissions three months a year: July, November and March. They publish three aesthetically pleasing journals a year.

Crannóg is looking for short stories and poetry. Poems should be under 50 lines and up to three poems can be submitted at a time. Submit no more then one story at a time and it should be no longer the 2ooo words.

If your work is accepted you will not be paid but you will get a contributors copy for free without postage. If you are American, an Irish journal is a welcome change of pace. I also believe that most non-north American journals are more open to unusual writing.

Crannóg only looks at submissions emailed to them. They expect work to be included in the body of the email as well as in an attachment (.doc or .docx only). They do not accept postal submissions. Make sure to include a 50 word bio and your postal address in case your work is chosen.

Crannóg takes about 6 weeks after a submission period closes to get back to their potential writers. They do not accept previously published works, and receive first publishing rights for your work, and then the rights return to you after publication. Crannóg accepts less then 5% of the work submitted to them

When you submit to Crannóg their editorial board of four writers review your work. Their mission is to publish a mix of Irish and international writing, to give their readers a good feeling for what is going on in the world in terms of new literature.

In conclusion Crannóg is a great place submit to because it is established, respected, and a print journal that gives you international exposure. for more information visit their website here: http://www.crannogmagazine.com/index.htm
