What a busy month it has been! Bindweed Magazine celebrated its second birthday at the beginning of April, and Issue 8 finished its last publication at the end of April.
To celebrate these milestones, Bindweed Anthology 2018: Devil’s Guts is launched. What does this mean for the publication schedule? From May until November 2018, poetry and fiction will be published on the Bindweed homepage and in December, a print anthology of all work appearing online will be published.
What’s in the future for Bindweed?
Here at Bindweed, we feel that 8 issues has been a great accomplishment, especially for a labour-of-love endeavour that has kept going despite the editors (Leilanie Stewart and Joseph Robert) having moved from London, England to Belfast, Northern Ireland, had a change of day jobs, contended with a broken bone, had a baby and moved house – twice! We ran our magazine with no Arts Council funding, or any other financial support at all. It’s all, purely, for the love of literature. We’re proudly independent and have no need for any government money – now, or ever!
The 2018 anthology will offer the same platform to writers and same format for readers, but on a yearly rather than quarterly schedule. We hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we have enjoyed publishing it.
