Hello and welcome to Runcible Spoon, a webzine aimed at showcasing the best in contemporary poetry and prose.
I thought it time to dust the homepage page down and give an update on what we have been up to.
Next month will be our second birthday and we are still going strong. The number of visits to the site continues to increase, we are above 6000 hits per month now. You are keeping us busy with your submissions but do please keep them rolling in, you, the contributors are the lifeblood of our webzine.
Prose writers where are you?
Remember, if you would like to see your work on the site please see the Submissions guidelines and send us a selection for consideration.
Exciting News! We have now launched our new publishing house Runcible Spoon Press, which will be specialising in poetry books and children's books, and I dare say children's poetry books too. Our first children's book, Rainy Day, has now released, check it out.
We will be announcing a themed poetry competition in the next month or two, again watch this space for details. Not to give too much away as to the theme, but...if you are familar with a certain poem about a cat, an owl, with the odd pig and turkey...
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE FOR THE RUNCIBLE SPOON OPEN MIC EVENT, this now takes place from 6pm second Sunday of every month at the Morley Dashers Pub in Morley, Leeds. We have guest readers and an open mic for poetry, prose and music. Why not come along for a relaxing evening, maybe perform some of your own work or just listen? You'll be guaranteed a warm welcome.
If anyone is interested in doing a guest reader spot, perhaps for a book or pamphlet launch please get in touch.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter (@RunciblePress) for forthcoming events and guest readers.
