Hello and welcome to Runcible Spoon, a webzine aimed at showcasing the best in contemporary poetry and prose.


Remember, if you would like to see your work on the site please see the Submissions guidelines and send us a selection for consideration.



As you are no doubt aware in view of the Covid 19 situation the Runcible Spoon open mic  events that take place in Morley, Leeds, on the second Sunday in every month have been suspended until further notice. However,  we are doing Spoon on Zoom, a virtual open mic event that takes place from 6pm Britsh Summer Time second Sunday of every month. This will offer a golden opportunity for people near and far to enjoy writers and poets reading their own material. Feel free to sign up for a slot or simply log in and listen. The access link can be found on the Runcible Spoon Facebook page.



Stay Safe




Apologies for the lack of updates in the last few weeks - we are very much still open! However the site is in the process of a significant update due to the fact that  browser support for adobe flash is to cease in December 2020. Our website editor is flash based and therefore we need to transfer the site over to new platform. This is a very significant piece of work.


Please bear with us and keep your submissions rolling in.
