Issue 15 is in production

A huge thank you to all who submitted to Issue 15. Once again the standard of entries was extremely high, resulting in a difficult but enjoyable challenge for our selection panels. The choice of entries for publication has now been made and successful contributors have been informed by email.  If you submitted an entry, you can check its status by logging in and following the link to My POTB.

The production team is now working hard on the editing, design and layout, leading to the publication of Issue 15 in April 2019.

Our Magazines

You can read about POTB, and how we work, on the About POTB page. Our current edition, POTB Issue 14, has been described as a ‘beautifully produced treasure house of new writing and art’. It boasts an array of inspiring work from talented authors, poets and artists, introduced by a glowing Foreword by novelist and poet Wayne Price and artist Tom Hammick’s personal inspiration for the image on which the eye-catching cover is based.
