Crannóg is Ireland’s premiere fiction and poetry magazine. Cronnog’s mission is to publish the work of Irish writers alongside the best available worldwide. Pays: €50 per story, €30 per poem. 
Deadline: Submissions open July 1, close July 31, 2017.  Submission guidelines here.

Pantheon magazine publishes fiction and poetry inspired by the gods and goddesses. Pays 1 cent/word for fiction, $5 for poetry.
For the fall, they’re seeking pieces prompted by Tethys, Titaness of fresh water: Tethys is the Titan daughter of the sky and the earth, guardian of fresh water, mother of the river gods and sea nymphs.
“Tell us stories about rivers and inland seas, about water caverns–and those who protect them. Tell us about what happens to those who trespass against Tethys. We want to read about the delicate creatures blooming in rain puddles and about the dark awareness at the bottom of cenotes.
“Pantheon Magazine is interested in fresh, creative, and powerful fiction that grips us and doesn’t let us go. We like it quick and concise, dammit. Longer work is also considered, but brevity is appreciated. We have short attention spans. Please include a note as to how your story is inspired or relates to the theme/prompt you are submitting to. If you do not do this, we cannot guarantee your story will be read. A single sentence is sufficient.”
For poetry, Pantheon is “fond of form and very partial to poems that end in fireworks – literal, figurative this is open to interpretation. We want poems that dazzle, that leave us breathless, that explode with meaning and beauty.
“We’re primarily a fiction magazine, but as we are also music and movie lovers, we always welcome music, movie, and book reviews, so long as the music/movie/book you are reviewing is relatively new. Preferably within the past month or two. We’re a little more lenient with music and book reviews, as there’s so much good stuff out there that’s overlooked. Please follow the same formatting guidelines (more or less) as fiction submissions. Please keep reviews under 1000 words.
“Would you like to be our featured cover artist for one of our issues? Email a sample of you work to: PantheonMag@Gmail.com
“We’ll get back in touch.
“Every so often, we will do interviews with authors/musicians who we like. Feel free to email us if you are working on a project that you would like to chat with us about.
Deadline: July 31, 2017. Submission guidelines here.
