May the Bindweed grow!
Convolvulus Arvensis, also known as bindweed, is stigmatised as being a nuisance by growing across garden fences and choking off the immaculately pruned flowers. But no one thinks about the beauty of the bindweed, opening their trumpets to the world, shouting to be heard. Is this not the state of publishing today? The neatly manicured, artificially honed flowers, given all the prestige, while the others are left to wilt?
If you are a bindweed flower trying to grow, see our Submission Guidelines and make the world your fence.

Does Bindweed pay contributors?
Bindweed is a not-for-profit labour of love endeavour run by two writers. We don’t give out free contributor copies of our anthologies as we would encourage readers to support Bindweed by buying our issues; with the money from sales, we run an ‘Editor’s pick’ for each anthology: one £10.00 prize for best fiction and two £5.00 prizes for best poetry in each anthology. Winners will be featured in the issue and be notified at the time of pre-order for that issue.
Why did Bindweed Magazine come about?
So many small press publications these days, both online and in print, are becoming defunct. Bindweed Magazine wants to be another platform for authors to showcase their work. The main reason we run Bindweed is to give writers and poets a place where they can promote their work and add another publication to their writing C.V./resume.
Where is Bindweed Magazine based?
It doesn’t really matter, since we have a worldwide audience, but if you really must know, Bindweed is currently based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. However, we publish quality writing from authors all over the world. So stop by, say hi, and send us your work!
