"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Crannog Summer 2010 edition

Dear Peter

The Editorial Board has now read all submissions and will publish The Song of Lugnad in the summer issue. Publication date is Friday June 25th. There will be a launch in the Crane Bar, Sea Road, Galway at 6.30 pm on that date. You are invited to attend and read from your submission. Please let me know by return if you intend to be there. We look forward to seeing you.


So, after years of trying, I've finally got a poem into Crannog, which I'm pretty chuffed about. Sadly, I've tried juggling around my working times but there's no way I can make June 25th. I bet they're thinking - God, we selected him and he can't even be arsed turning up...


  1. Nice one Pete, I look the like of Crannog. You keeps churning out these litle victories, the war will soon be won.

  2. I think you should make your response about the esteemed poet who is quite grateful for the publication but can't make space in his diary on such short notice because of all his other poet's engagements.

    Way to go on the the publication Pete!

  3. Sounds great! Too bad you can't swing it. That's the day after my birthday. So, remember to have drink and think of me on the 24th. I'm all out of 40s this year.


  4. Yahoo! Well done and shame you can't make it.

  5. Hi Jen, yup, my diary is sooooo full!!
    Kat, me too, though 6 months later than you!!
    Karen, Titus,many thanks
