Month: October 2021

Extended Closing Date

We want to see more of your work! Why not have a go?

Our National Poetry Day Competition’s closing date has been extended to 20th of November 2021, meaning the winners will also be announced later on on the 10th of December 2021. For more information, have a look at the tabs at the top of the page.


November is National Novel Writing Month 2021, and if you are up for a challenge, you can take part too! Check out these links below:

Welcome | NaNoWriMo (for adults)

NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program (for those 17 or younger)

The two links above will help you to write a novel in only 30 days (throughout the month of November)! The challenge is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month (that’s 1667 words each day), afterwards, there is then the option to self-publish your work on a publishing site. I will be taking part, and I would strongly encourage you to give it a go as well!

If you feel this may be a lot to handle, or doesn’t fit your schedule, you can set your own goals on the website.

All you have to do to get involved is sign up and get an account. The best part is, it’s completely FREE!

As a result, we apologise that response time to submissions may take a little longer than usual, but we will always try to respond as soon as we can.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Halloween is a wonderful time that is extremely spooky, but full of inspiration! To celebrate Halloween 2021, we are launching an extra spooky competition. We want your photography, poetry and flash fiction. We want to be sat on the edges of our seats, our spines tingling and holding our breath throughout. The competition runs from today until 30th November. For more information, check out the tabs at the top of the page. Good luck!

This Halloween will be extra special as after a year of no celebrations, we can finally get out the dusty decorations and eerie costumes. Have fun and stay safe!

Happy National Poetry Day!

Happy National Poetry Day! Today 7th October 2021, is National Poetry Day, and this year the theme is Choice! Throughout these hard times, poetry has really brought us together and today is a day to celebrate. In celebration we would like to announce our brand new poetry competition. This competition will be open from today until the 31st October 2021 (when a new spooky competition will be opening). The theme is choice just like this year National Poetry Day’s theme. We would love to see your work. You can find more information at

On that note, I want to encourage everyone to keep reading and writing poetry – it is such a brilliant hobby that is so much fun no matter how much you do it.

Happy National Poetry Day – Enjoy!!!!!!

Ideas For The Future

I would like to start by thanking everyone who has submitted, looked at our site and who is reading this now. It has been such a successful launch with so many submissions of incredible writing, poetry and photography. It may only have been a month, but we are always looking to the future.

If you have any new ideas for the future of the magazine, or ways to improve our growing site, please feel free to post your idea in the comments section. We have already been observing the questions and queries that have been asked, and we are leaning towards the inclusion of art in the magazine. We would also like your view on this. We are also looking to create more competition opportunities that are completely free to enter, meaning that we can include more writers, poets and photographers so that everyone can get involved.
