Bindweed Online 2021 is now launched! Since we (here in Northern Ireland/ the U.K.) are starting 2021 in another lockdown, there’s no better time than now to hunker down with some great poetry and fiction that you can enjoy anywhere in the world, whether you are in lockdown or not. New writing will be published every few days throughout the year, appearing on the Bindweed Magazine homepage and archived on the Issue 11 page. Submission Guidelines can be found there too for any writers and poets wishing to submit work. We read all year round and accept all genres and themes.
Bindweed Online 2020 is now launched to celebrate the start of a new decade. New poetry and fiction will be published every few days throughout the year, appearing on the Bindweed Magazine homepage and archived on the Issue 10 page. Submission Guidelines can be found there too for any writers and poets wishing to submit work. We read all year round and accept all genres and themes.
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!
Just a quick note to say sorry for the gap in publications! We’ve been busy reading through our Bindweed submission backlog, as well as contending with individual projects this month: a request for a full novel manuscript (Leilanie Stewart) and promoting a new poetry collection (Joseph Robert). We’ll be back to publishing more regularly now, so keep reading!
Despite personal setbacks in 2018, Joseph Robert and I have managed to get Bindweed Magazine Issue 8 into print almost a year after the online publication schedule finished in April last year.
It’s finally here. Hurray!
The past year has been a whirlwind of going back to the dayjob after maternity leave, coping with a sick baby, moving house (again!) and a family bereavement on top of all that. The setbacks delayed our publication schedule, but true to the nature of the convolvulus weed itself, Bindweed Magazine has managed to bounce back from the brink…essentially I have kept our little zine going through tough times. So thanks for bearing with me and here we go:
