Issue 10 is now open to submissions!

Read the interview with Editor-in-Chief, Leilanie Stewart, on Six Questions For

1 🍃 NO ATTACHMENTS PLEASE. Attachments will be deleted unread. All work must be submitted in the body of an email.

2 🍃 COMPLETED WORKS ONLY PLEASE. The editors will not look at any revisions once an offer for publication has been made. The editors will amend typos before publication.

3 🍃 Simultaneous submissions are fine but please let us know if your work is published elsewhere.

4 🍃 If you wish to use a pseudonym, please make sure you mark your work with PEN NAME: and LEGAL NAME: If you don’t mark work clearly in this format, and work is published under the wrong name, the Editors reserve the right not to make any corrections upon publication.

5 🍃 If you wish to, you can include a THIRD PERSON BIO and links to your blog/ website/ social media. First person bios will not be published; only the author’s name will appear. Please note: it is NOT essential to provide a bio if you don’t want to.

6 🍃 All work submitted to Bindweed must be unpublished. This includes on personal blogs/Twitter accounts/Facebook, etc. Work published in Bindweed Magazine will appear on the WordPress blog homepage, where it will be archived, and will later appear in the Print-on-demand anthology for the relevant issue.

7 🍃 PLEASE TAKE NOTE: If you have used irregular line spacing, tabs or centre justification, it will not appear this way on the homepage due to the nature of the Ezine. Your work will, however, be printed in its original layout in the print anthology – all work will be published in Arial font.

8 🍃 Please note that if you withdraw your work from publication after having previously confirmed the offer of publication, any future submissions at a later date will not be read.

9 🍃 Please query after 12 weeks/ 3 months if you haven’t had a response. Bindweed is run by a couple of writers to give back to the literary community and is done so as a labour-of-love: things can get slow around here!

10 🍃 If your work is accepted for publication in an issue, please wait for another issue to pass before submitting again.

🌺 POETRY: 6 poems in the body of the email. Maximum length 50 lines (to accommodate the printed anthology). Any style welcome.

🌺 PROSE: Fiction of up to 3000 words copied into the body of the email. Any theme fine.

Acceptance means that Bindweed Magazine has first electronic publication rights. Upon publication, all rights revert immediately to the author.
