Hello to you again from all of us at Bunbury Magazine! It’s that time again, dear Bunburyists. Time for another installment of your favourite international, wide-read, beautifully curated and over-epitheted arts-and-literature magazine (which seemingly has a curious love of hyphens). Bunbury is back! Back again. Can’t get rid of us, can you? Issue 13 is here. Unlucky for some, but not for you dear Bunburyists because it’s another issue jam-packed of the usual high-quality content you come to expect from us – poetry, stories, art and photography and JAM! Mmmm. Jam.
And you can grab your copy of issue 13 right now by clicking on the stunning artwork below!
Mind you, we are quite giddy here at the moment. As we write this, we are in the middle of campaigning for the Saboteur Awards. We’ve been nominated for Best Magazine. Too right, as well! We’re pretty damn spiffy if we do say so ourselves. (In the end, we placed a very honourable third!)
Enough of the gushing anyway. What have we got for you this month? Space. That’s the theme, in memory of the great David Bowie who joined the Starman waiting in the Sky this year. Along with our usual poetry section, we have some wonderful poems written in his memory.
And while we’re on the subject, take this issue as being dedicated to some of the other wonderful talents we have lost this year: Victoria Wood, Terry Wogan, Alan Rickman, Prince, Paul Kantner, Glenn Frey, Ronnie Corbett and so many more besides. Each one has added something marvellous to the world and will never be forgotten.
Our feature this issue sees us turn our eye on the wonderful world of podcasts. We adore podcasts. There’s something so wonderfully fresh about them. The performers can really be themselves and make what they want to make and the results are often so sparkling and vibrant. And diverse! There’s an entire world out there to listen to. We’ve had the pleasure of talking to the hosts of some of our favourite podcasts; Ray Peacock & Barry Dodds from The Parapod; Rob Rouse from The Rob Rouse Podcast. We heartily recommend listening to all of these but have a read of their interviews first. Or listen while you read? Oh, the options are some.
In other news, we have launched our very first physical book. It is the Bunbury Creative Anthology; it is the our favourite writing from the first 12 issues of Bunbury Magazine. It is full of brilliant poetry, short stories and flash fiction from the likes of It includes stunning writing from the likes of Clare Ferguson-Walker, The Antipoet, David Subacchi, Dean Rhetoric, Danielle Matthews, Dave Judgement, Karen Little, Kevin McMahon, Kurt Jarram to mention but a few! Well you can get your very own copy now! It’s on Amazon as either physical copy or e-book. Please leave a review too so more people can see the phenomenal writing on display it the pages! Just click the beautiful cover below!

Anyway, enough from us. Get in there you. Have fun. This Bunbury is a good’un. Next time we speak Christopher and Keri shall be married and exhausted from Edinburgh. But MARRIED! The giddiness is returning.
Bye! And keep scribbling!
Christopher and Keri.
