Crannog 26 Spring 2011

This issue of Crannog will be launched on Friday, 25th February in the Crane Bar, Sea Road, Galway at 6.30pm.  I'm very pleased to have a poem included in it.  It's called Pluto's Hidden Stars and consists of 21 lines and three verses.  It's always wonderful to have a poem published.  If I could compare it to something it would be to letting go of a kite you have put up into the sky. 

Last autumn Crannog reached the 25th issue milestone.  Boyne Berries will have its own milestone in the autumn when it reaches its 10th issue. 


  1. Thats a lovely comparison! And true!

    I love crannog, they published my first ever story, and they are really good at rejections (quick and polite) which, i think, is as importent as acceptances sometimes!

    And congratulations on your publication!

    I didnt get around to replying to our last posts conversation - but if i can now, i prefer mornings to write - not always possible - but it leaves me feeling good about my day, and more likely then to write a bit in the evening too, because I've something to go back to.

    I've copied out the rumi poem you posted way back - (the breeze at dawn...) because it encourages me to write early!

  2. I agree, early in the morning and the evening when they are possible are good times. Aw yeah the one about don't go back to sleep and you must ask for what you really want. It's the same as asking the universe or God. That's nice Niamh.

  3. Yay! Congratulations and I love the letting go of the kite image.

  4. Well done Orla. Yes WAD Crannog also was the first to publish a poem of mine. I have a soft spot for them.

  5. Nice one, Orla, congratulations. I assume, in the absence of any communication, that the wheat and chaff have been justly separated.
