A year and 3 months later and the labour-of-love publication, Bindweed Magazine, that I’m co-running with Joseph Robert, is going strong. We have published writers from all over the world and currently have a huge backlog of poetry and fiction to get through; or maybe a hedge-load of convolvulus is more apt!
The latest print anthology (Issue 5) came in the post this morning. It’s always a satisfying feeling to hold those glossy paperback copies in my hands; a product of not only all the authors’ work, but of the many hours that I spent in editing, formatting and designing the manuscript for the final print version of each issue.
The Ezine for Issue 6 is currently running for July, August and September: the print anthology for all work appearing over the summer should be available in the print anthology due in October 2017. Minor delays in the publication schedule might happen, since of course a baby Bindweed is joining the ever blooming family-run business in the near future! But, for any budding writers out there looking for a home for their finished poetry and fiction, check out the submission guidelines for Issue 7 and send along your work. There’s still room for work appearing in Bindweed Magazine in October, November and December 2017.
Of course, if you want to check out back issues, feel free to have a peruse:
Issue 1: Morning Glory
