Submissions closed: we’re on holiday!

Temporary delay to our publishing schedule for the next 2 weeks as we’re on a much-needed staycation. Bear with us; poetry and fiction that is due to be published will still go live when we can grab a moment, but due to a backlog of submissions, we can’t read any new work for the last few weeks of August. Keep checking in and we’ll be back soon…

Submission response time delay – apologies!

As you may know, Bindweed Online 2019 has an ongoing submission call for poetry and fiction, with a note on our Submissions page to query after 2 months. In June, Bindweed Magazine Editor in Chief, Leilanie Stewart, received the exciting news that her debut fantasy novel, Gods of Avalon Road, will be coming soon from Blossom Spring Publishing! Over the summer, she has been busy working with her publisher to edit the manuscript.

As such, both of us here at Bindweed would like to apologise for the delay in responding to new submissions. We are delighted that Bindweed Magazine continues to be a popular choice for writers seeking a home for their work, and we indeed read each and every submission sent to us. However, we’re experiencing a backlog at the moment due to our own current publishing projects. We’ll get back to you all as soon as we can and in the meantime, all accepted work will be published on the Bindweed homepage, as usual.

Thanks for bearing with us, and for keeping the Bindweed blooming!

Leilanie and Joseph
