Our Magazines

Issue 14 of POTB is currently in the content selection stage, the call for submissions having closed on 24th September. Publication of the new edition is scheduled for April 2017.

In the meantime, take a peek at Issue 13 – our latest edition. We think it is our best yet. Read the foreword by renowned author Esther Woolfson, sample a few extracts of poetry and prose, and view the gallery of art published in the magazine. Then you’re sure to want a copy.

The magazine can be purchased from one of our retail outlets or you can order online.

Browse through previous editions of the magazine. Issues 9 – 12 can be read in full online and all are available for purchase through our online shop.
