You’ve read Bunbury, now listen to us!

Hello to you all from Bunbury Magazine!

We’re just dropping by the give you a quick update on what we are up to at Bunbury HQ.

Did you know we’re now doing podcasts? Well we are. This is a very exciting development and means you won’t be too long between bouts of Bunbury. Currently, we are running two.

Bunbury Speaks, which is a monthly interview podcast with a twist. As well as talking to some very special people about writing, inspirations and all manner of other things, each guest contributes to a chain story, taking a starting point to some very interesting places. Currently, there is one episode available where the guest is our very own poetry editor Malika Street.

Just Write Speaks, the recording of our monthly spoken word event. There are open micers and special guests bringing a huge variety of rhymes and words to your ears. There is almost 6 months worth of events live right now, with guests including Rose Condo, Genevieve L Walsh, Broccan Tyzack-Carlin and many more!

Both of these can be found by clicking the lovely photo below.

This month, we have Joe Williams as our special guest. If you are in or around Manchester, please drop by. There are open mic slots available as well as the chance to compete in the Haiku Death Match. Search Just Write Speaks on Facebook or follow the link to the event right here – Just Write Speaks June.

If you enjoy the podcasts, please consider subscribing and reviewing us on iTunes while you are there.

In other news, Bunbury is still open for submissions. The theme is run and we are looking for short stories, poetry, flash fiction and all manner of writing. Details of our submissions guidelines can be found below.

That’s all from us, folks. Before submitting, consider looking through some past issues to see the kind of thing we do. You can get to our past issues through our website.

Much love and keep scribbling,

Christopher and Keri.

Structo issue 14 is now online, in its entirety, to read for free. This most recent issue contains 14 short stories, 14 poems, and two interviews—one with David Gaffney and another with Ursula K. Le Guin. It’s a monster of an issue at 138 pages, and we were delighted when it was recently shortlisted for a Stack Award for Best Original Fiction. You can find more details, as well as listen to bonus material from issue contributors, at the issue page.

We are marking the online launch by putting the final box of physical magazines on sale at 40% off, so if you want one of the last 25, now’s the time! Just enter the code ’14at40′ at checkout or use this direct link.

But really, the most valuable thing you can do is tell a friend about Structo, as magazines like ours thrive by word of mouth. Share and enjoy!
