Hello dear Bunburyists!
We have had quite the busy time of it here at Bunbury Magazine HQ! Firstly, we would like to introduce you to our new addition, Siân S. Rathore who has climbed aboard and will be taking care the poetry. Taking it for walks, feeding it, making sure it gets enough affection. Most importantly, Siân will be editing it. This makes us happy. We’re thrilled to have her on board as her achievements and skill-set are amazing. We look forward to working with her on other projects in the future too!
At the beginning of August, Co-directors Christopher and Keri only went and blinking got married, becoming Mr & Mrs Moriarty! In true form, they had a poetry slam, the winner of which was Fiona Nuttall who won a canvas painted by Keri. They cut the cake with a chainsaw so, pretty standard stuff really.
After that, we went to Edinburgh for the Fringe festival as we do every year. We had a great time and, as usual, we handed out our interview packs, made new friends and met up with old ones too. There are lots of pictures and reviews on our website, bunburymagazine.com to look at from our trip. The Edinburgh Fringe special feature will be out later on in the year so we’ll keep you up to date with that.
Anyhoo, back to this issue. The theme was Atmosphere and we have loads of wonderful things for you to gaze upon and get cosy with including an interview with the wonderful and always lovely David Hartley, some fabulous art and photography and the usual selection of top class fiction and poetry and much, much more.
To get your hands on the latest lovely package of joy, click on the gorgeous front cover below (it was done by the amazingly talented Rachael Broadhurst. As always, it is available for Pay-What-You-Like (though we do recommend £3 for all the hard work our team puts into it.)
We really hope you enjoy this issue as much (if not more!) as previous ones. We always are taken aback by the quality of pieces submitted to us. We say it every time, if it wasn’t for your submissions and kind words, we wouldn’t be here.
We will be back in December with our Terra-themed issue. This will also include the fruits of our trip to Edinburgh, with loads of interviews from some of the stars of the Free Fringe. In the meantime, please do check in with us on social media. We have them all and everything!
Thank you all so very much, sit back, relax and bathe your eyes in Bunbury!
Christopher & Keri Moriarty
