Crannóg is run by an editorial board of four writers: Sandra Bunting, Ger Burke, Jarlath Fahy and Tony O’Dwyer. Jarlath and Tony are both poets while Ger is a novelist and short-story writer. Sandra writes poetry and fiction and is also a visual artist. She locates artwork from artists round the world for the covers, which have gained iconic status.
For each of the three issues the Crannóg office receives close to a thousand submissions. The four editorial board members read every poem and short-story. That means each submission is read four times. Or as we like to say ‘by eight eyes!’
Crannóg’s mission is to publish the work of Irish writers alongside the best available worldwide and to show how well such writing sits with the best available internationally. This has a dual effect of giving writers a world platform to have their work read in print and also brings work of an international standard to the attention of an Irish audience.
The eight eyes that read every submission! L-R Sandra Bunting, Tony O'Dwyer, Ger Burke, Jarlath Fahy
