Contribute to Corncrake!

Established in association with Fermanagh Writers, Corncrake Magazine is a community arts E-zine for Fermanagh and the cross-border area, reaching from Omagh to Cavan and from Ballyshannon to Monaghan.

The last day for contributions to the next issue is Tuesday 11th April.

All submissions/queries should be sent to: editor@corncrakemagazine.com

 As well as writing we are looking for articles on:

MUSIC: Live and recorded musicians, bands, songwriters, collectives, promoters, studios, management, events, workshops.

VISUAL ARTS: Photography, film-making, animation, painting, drawing, graphic novel, sculpture, galleries, workshops, events.

PERFORMANCE: Dance, theatre, musicals, performance poetry, street performance, events, workshops

If you don’t feel confident to write about these yourself but you know someone who might, please let us know..

Each article should be around 400-600 words, but don’t worry if it needs to be more – or less.

We need these kind of articles about things local and creative:

 Direct Content: Submissions of poetry, prose, photography & other fine art, or links to audio/video with a few words to put it into context: who is the creator, what inspired it.

Introducing: Short biopic introducing a local artist, venue or event, or a community organisation that helps the local arts.

Food For Thought: An opinion piece giving insight or advice on the arts, preferably constructive and inspirational. Examples: writing/song-writing/painting advice, why we do what we do, thoughts on a piece of art special/meaningful to your artistic career, pivotal moments in your artistic development, artistic philosophy.

Interview: Short interviews on the past, present and future of your artistic career, interested parties can receive/organise interview questions via email.

Reviews of local arts, recordings, gigs, films, theatre, exhibitions etc.

Arts News about funding, support, and how political/council choices are affecting the arts in the cross border area.


Please let us know which kind of article you wish to contribute, and where possible include a featured image for your article.

It would help greatly if you could put the sphere of arts and the type of article in your email title, e.g.:

Your category LITERATURE/MUSIC/PERFORMANCE /VISUAL ARTS
Followed by your article. Direct Content/Interview/Review/Introducing/News/Food for Thought
