What a month it has been! Since I launched my online magazine on 3 April, I’ve been inundated with poetry submissions – you can read all of the great verse so far on the Bindweed Magazine homepage. It’s great to know that there are so many quality poets out there keeping poetry alive; and in the case of Bindweed, growing and spreading to creep over all the immaculately manicured poetry-petals of mainstream verse!

But, there is still a need for quality prose submissions. Bindweed is still seeking fiction for Issue 1. Whether you write flash fiction (less than 1000 words), or short stories (I’m happy to take stories of up to 3000 words – this length is to accommodate the later print anthology), as long as your work is interesting and well written, feel free to send it my way! You can check out the Bindweed Magazine Submission Guidelines for more information.

Happy writing, folks!



About Leilanie Stewart

Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry. In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
