What Bide likes most about words is the moments spent with them. Brevity of moments. A snatched story or a glimpsed character or just a minute on the back of a truck with the dry air coming down from the desert. New writers and established writers and writers with moustaches and writers with green shoes.

Bide is for flash. Not just fiction, and actually, not just writing. But momentary storytelling. Stuff that fits on a page, or inside a minute. Glances.

Bide will be published twice a year as a printed, stapled A5 zine, with a hand-written thanks from your friendly local editor, Anna Spargo-Ryan. It will also be available online as a PDF download, and as a .mobi and .epub, for your digital bookery.
