Midsummer Madness anthology is open for submissions

We have been busy here at Bindweed, reading submissions for our forthcoming anthology, Midsummer Madness 2022, due for release on 21st June. We are delighted at the high quality of the poetry and fiction we have received; we’ve been spoiled for choice.

There is still time for writers and poets to send us their work for consideration. We will continue reading until April 30th; after this date, we will be closed as we format the ebook and possible paperback edition of the anthology.

Check out our submission guidelines for what we’re looking for – and good luck!

Submissions are open for Bindweed Anthology: Midsummer Madness 2022

Bindweed Online 2022: Issue 12 is now closed to submissions. But we have exciting news…

Coming up in June 2022, we will be publishing our first biannual anthology. Bindweed Anthology: Midsummer Madness 2022 will launch on 21st June as a Kindle eBook. (This may also be available in paperback if the editors get the time to edit and typeset the manuscript, in between full time work, childcare and our own writing projects. We’ll keep you updated).

We are now open for submissions for this anthology. We’re looking for poetry, fiction or other unpublished literary hybrids that are experimental, offbeat and one of a kind.

Read our Submission Guidelines for more on what we like.

We look forward to reading your work!
