Welcome to Bindweed Magazine Issue 8: Laplove

20170703_155204

Spring is on the horizon! Here at Bindweed, our lateral roots have survived the shortest days and (hopefully) coldest nights. Of course, that’s for us folks in the Northern Hemisphere: our fellow Bindweed contributors and readers in Southern climates may well be enjoying a good bloom in the sunshine as I write this.

Issue 8 will run its publication schedule across February, March and April 2018. To reflect the change of seasons ahead, this issue is called ‘Laplove’, another common nickname for convolvulus arvensis. With that in mind, here at Bindweed, we’re hoping that Groundhog Day will pass without a shadow, we wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day and look forward to spring just around the corner.

Enjoy!

Welcome to Bindweed Magazine Issue 7: Lady-jump-out-of-bed

​Editor’s Note 

Welcome to Issue 7 of Bindweed Magazine!

 

This issue of Bindweed sees in the new year: publications will run through November and December 2017 and January 2018. Goodbye old, hello new! The change in schedule from October to December 2017 has been due to fellow Bindweed Editor, Joseph Robert and I, introducing a new member to the Bindweed family: a baby boy born in August. Soon after, we had a house move in October 2017. Bindweed was temporarily pruned back on the hedge as other life pursuits took over.

Now all is back on track – whew! Issue 7 is given another common Bindweed nickname: Lady-jump-out-of-bed. The origin of this one is unclear to me. At least, I haven’t managed to source the etymology from digging around. But then, like Convolvulus Arvensis itself, it tends to spring up seemingly out of nowhere and take over. Tenacious little creeper, indeed. Hopefully 2018 will be just as proliferous for our magazine too.

Enjoy!

Bindweed on hiatus

Apologies, dear readers and contributors! We are having to take a short hiatus due to having a newborn baby and a forthcoming house move at the start of October. Sometimes life gets in the way of publishing pursuits.

If you have work due to be published in September for Issue 6 on the homepage, it will be delayed until October onwards.

If you have submitted work for consideration in Issue 7, we’ll be in touch.

Submissions for Issue 7 onwards are currently closed.

We’ll be back in due course – keep stopping by!
