Hi friends and followers of Bindweed.
As you may know, Bindweed is a labour of love run by two writers to help fellow writers and to give back to the writing community at a time when so many traditionally published magazines are becoming defunct. We’re delighted that in its sixth year, Bindweed has been so busy that in September we had to close to submissions in order to read through our backlog.
Recently a contributor complained that ads are showing through her poems published on our site. Comments like this are unhelpful as sadly we can’t afford to pay for the Bindweed website – it’s a free WordPress blog. If ads are showing through the poems, unfortunately it’s because we receive no financial support/ Arts Council funding/ private donations. Complaining to us doesn’t do much, other than make us question why we devote so much of our time to help others who are negative in return.
If you want to help us to keep Bindweed going in 2022 or beyond, here’s how you can help:
