Hello Dear Bunburyists! Bunbury Magazine is back!
Right, come on now. Settle down. This is no time for fun. Certainly not with the theme of this issue. A theme which speaks to us all on some level – from those who live, breath and eat it to those who feel the tremors rippling out from the epicentres created on its landscape. We are talking about Politics.
Get Issue Ten right here, right now on Pay-What-You-Like:
After the drama of the General Election in May, and the distinct lack of hat-eating afterwards, we invited our wonderful contributors to take on this oft murky topic and, as always, they did not disappoint! We are very proud to present some of the best writing around which takes on all aspects of politics, from voting itself to the somewhat darker, more controversy-strewn aspects of that which governs our lives, often very satirically but all with great poignancy.
You know the drill by now guys, ten issues in! It’s not just the best writing we have here at Bunbury, but art and photography too, and always in bundles! We have had the pleasure of having some great artists brand-new to us for this issue, from deeply experienced to teen siblings creating some of the most beautifully bonkers comics we’ve ever seen.
As well as all that, we always have a round up of the fantastic Deer Shed Festival, based in Baldersby Park, Yorkshire and interviews with some of the musical and literary highlights of the weekend. So strap in, now is the time for fun. Funbury! That’s too much isn’t it?
We are quite excited here. We headed up to Edinburgh last month to get interviews with some of the wonderful people who make the Fringe so awesome. Issue Eleven will have an absolutely ram-packed feature, full of words and faces, giving you the pick of our Fringe experience. Look out for that in two months’ time!
Also, issue ten! A landmark. Ten issues of what we believe to be a really important platform for emerging and established creativity. Thank you so much for being with us all this time and we’re sure we’ll be thanking you again in another ten issues’ time.
Our inbox is open for submissions for issue eleven of Bunbury as well! The theme is Crime and we are accepting everything from short stories and poetry to non-fiction and essays, art and photography and we are looking to interview some lovely talented people! One thing we are keen to do is use Twitch on the X-Box One to interview people while we play big ‘splodey games so if this is something you would like to do, get in touch!
To submit to us, drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also get the entire Bunbury back catalogue. All of the nine other issues to date, full of some of the best writing, art, and interviews from around the world. It’s all on Pay-What-You-Like, so take it for free if you like or give a little if you can. The only thing we ask for sure is share us with your friends and family. Help us keep doing what we do and spread the word!
