Reading submissions for Winter Wonderland 2022: Bindweed Anthology

We’ve been busy bees reading submissions

It has been a busy summer so far for us here at Bindweed. Since we opened our reading period for our second anthology of this year, Winter Wonderland 2022, we have had submissions of poetry and prose from all over the world and we’re delighted with the quality of writing being sent our way. Keep those submissions coming, we’ll be reading for this anthology until November 2022.

Welcome to Bindweed Magazine Issue 11

Happy New Year!

Bindweed Online 2021 is now launched! Since we (here in Northern Ireland/ the U.K.) are starting 2021 in another lockdown, there’s no better time than now to hunker down with some great poetry and fiction that you can enjoy anywhere in the world, whether you are in lockdown or not. New writing will be published every few days throughout the year, appearing on the Bindweed Magazine homepage and archived on the Issue 11 page. Submission Guidelines can be found there too for any writers and poets wishing to submit work. We read all year round and accept all genres and themes.

May 2021 bring health and happiness for us all!

Submission response time delay – apologies!

As you may know, Bindweed Online 2019 has an ongoing submission call for poetry and fiction, with a note on our Submissions page to query after 2 months. In June, Bindweed Magazine Editor in Chief, Leilanie Stewart, received the exciting news that her debut fantasy novel, Gods of Avalon Road, will be coming soon from Blossom Spring Publishing! Over the summer, she has been busy working with her publisher to edit the manuscript.

This has also coincided with fellow Bindweed Editor, Joseph Robert’s latest poetry collection, Brexit Brokeshit, being released.



As such, both of us here at Bindweed would like to apologise for the delay in responding to new submissions. We are delighted that Bindweed Magazine continues to be a popular choice for writers seeking a home for their work, and we indeed read each and every submission sent to us. However, we’re experiencing a backlog at the moment due to our own current publishing projects. We’ll get back to you all as soon as we can and in the meantime, all accepted work will be published on the Bindweed homepage, as usual.

Thanks for bearing with us, and for keeping the Bindweed blooming!

Leilanie and Joseph




Apologies for the publication delay!

Just a quick note to say sorry for the gap in publications! We’ve been busy reading through our Bindweed submission backlog, as well as contending with individual projects this month: a request for a full novel manuscript (Leilanie Stewart) and promoting a new poetry collection (Joseph Robert). We’ll be back to publishing more regularly now, so keep reading!

Welcome to Bindweed Online 2019!

Bindweed Online 2019 - Richard Havenga.JPGHappy new year and welcome to Bindweed Online 2019! This year, Bindweed will continue publishing poetry and fiction on the Bindweed Magazine homepage and listing it under the Bindweed Online 2019 archive, in the same way Bindweed Magazine Issues 1-8 and Bindweed Anthology 2018: Devil’s Guts appeared. However, the new format for 2019 will see work published primarily online. If time and resources allow, there may be a print anthology at a later date.

The publication schedule will be flexible and on a rolling basis. So keep those submissions coming and look out for some great poetry and fiction coming up.
