Midsummer Madness 2023 – cover reveal coming soon!

Exciting news! We’re busy formatting the eBook version of the Midsummer Madness 2023: Bindweed Anthology and typesetting the paperback. Thanks again to all the writers and poets who submitted. Everyone who sent work before 30th April will have received a response from us by now, so if you haven’t, please check your junk folder. We only publish contributors who reply to our offer of acceptance email, as we like to double-triple check that writers and poets are really sure they wish to proceed with publication.

The cover will be revealed when the eBook is available for pre-order on 1st June. We’ll also announce the winners of our ‘Editor’s pick’ poetry and fiction prizes. Two poets will receive £5 each and one fiction writer will receive £10. Payment will be by Amazon e-gift card emailed to the winners to be used in their preferred marketplace.

Submissions remain open for our next anthology, Winter Wonderland 2023, which will be published on 21st December.


Happy World Poetry Day 2023!

News Promotional

Bindweed’s Winter Wonderland 2022 included in The Journal’s ‘Round Up’

Bindweed’s recently published Winter Wonderland 2022 anthology has received a write-up in The Journal, edited and published by Sam Smith.

Three of Sam’s poems appear in Winter Wonderland 2022 and he kindly shared his thoughts on the anthology in the ‘Round Up’ section on page 35 towards the back of The Journal. Jeanne Julian, Helga Kidder, Kathy Craig and Pui Ying’s poetry particularly stood out for a mention, as did the short stories.

Like Bindweed, The Journal is open for submissions all year round, so you can check out the submissions guidelines via the links included.

Thanks to Sam and The Journal for giving Winter Wonderland 2022 a review and for a copy of the publication, which we look forward to reading in more depth over a coffee!


Happy New Year from Bindweed!

Here’s hoping 2023 will be a good one for us all!
