Bunbury Magazine here with Crime, Space and World Cup of Authors!

Hello to you all, Bunbury Magazine here! Lovely to see you all again. We are here with some news and updates for your eyes.

First of all, we want to thank all of you that have downloaded Issue Eleven of Bunbury. The response has been absolutely brilliant. If you missed it, then do not hesitate any longer! It is our crime-theme bonanza. Not only that, but we have an epic (we do not use that word lightly!) feature on the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015, packed full of interviews with some of the best performers that were up there, including Phil Jupitus, Wil Hodgson, Cormac Friel and Christian Reilly. It really is worth it AND it is Pay-What-You-Like. Click the pick below to get your digi-hands on it today.

We are also on a drive for submissions for issue thirteen. The theme is Space, in memory of David Bowie. We are looking for short stories, poetry, flash fiction, art, photography. Anything really! Here is another picture to click, this time to our submission guidelines!

At the start of February, we are having a bit of fun. We are running a World Cup of Authors. We have been through the Goodreads lists of best authors from 4 categories – Pre-19th Century, 19th Century, 20th Century and 21st Century (so far!) – and chosen qualifying authors. We want you to vote on who should reach the last 32 from each section. 4 from Pre-19th Century. We have another picture for your eyes now. It is the long lists of each category. Click on it to go to the tweet where you can vote for your favourites. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #worldcupofauthors.

Other than all that, keep your eyes peeled for a competition we will be running in the coming months. We are also starting our writing group up again. It is run in Bury, just outside of Manchester. It is a very welcoming group where you can share your work in a safe space and get some great feedback on what you are working on at the moment. We also run regular events with brilliant headliners. This year, we are also looking to start a poetry slam so it is well worth coming along if you live in the area. Full details on the group can be found here. (Yes, yes, another wonderful picture for you!

Christopher and Keri.
