Our short interview with Stephen Watt is now online! You can read the piece here.
Unbeknownst to us, the website we were hosting the PDF of Issue II on was hoaching with all sorts of nonsense. We sincerely apologise for this! It looks absolutely fine on my laptop, but some people were experiencing difficulties.
Therefore, we have moved our hosting to Dropbox. You don't need an account to download the file, just click the link and then hit the download button. I hope this is easier for everyone!

Also, the submissions for our SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGY close on 23.03.14, so get submitting! Check the submission guidelines for all the relevant information (bearing in mind the maximum word count for this particular issue is 5000).
We've had some lovely and wonderful feedback about Issue II so far! We're delighted that people are enjoying it and that we're bringing our contributors to new audiences.
We'll be releasing ANOTHER issue very shortly, a very special one indeed. For a very limited time, approximated a week, we will be accepting submissions of short stories under 5000 words. Please follow the submission guidelines (taking into account the increased word count) and send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep your eyes peeled for more info! Until then, keep spreading the word about The Grind with your likes and shares, your favourites and your retweets, or even just telling your friends and family. We appreciate all your support more than you'll ever know and we couldn't do it without you. Thank you!
We are delighted to announce that, after many weeks of frustration and near-disasters, Issue II is now online and ready to view!
We would like to extent our deepest gratitude to our contributors; we hope we have done their work justice. A huge thank you also to our readers. We sincerely hope you enjoy The Grind.
We would love to hear what your opinions and thoughts on the journal. Feel free to leave comments on here, the various websites it is available from, or email us at email@example.com.
You can view the journal via Scribd and Issuu, or directly download the PDF from Dropbox.
We have just published our very first review/interview! We chatted to Robert Canavan of Campfires in Winter about their 'Picture of Health' EP. You can read the piece here.
I feel that we owe some people a bit of an explanation as to why our second edition has not materialised yet.
The short answer is that we're working on it. The long answer, which is a bit more self-indulgent, is that real life has caught up with us momentarily and we have had to postpone this issue slightly. It's pretty much done! It's just sitting there waiting on a contents page being added; patiently and quietly. Unfortunately, we (The Grind team, I should say) have not been able to get together to put the finishing touches on it and to make sure we're all happy with it. This is mostly due to excessive and antisocial working hours.
I can assure you that the second edition of The Grind is not only imminent, but also bigger, more beautiful, and more packed to the gunnels with creative talent than the first.
It is coming. Please bear with us.
After many delays and setbacks we are delighted to announce that our new website is live!
You can find links to our first edition in the Fiction section. Our much anticipated second edition will be released very shortly. We also have some fantastic pieces from Headphonaught and Liz Nicholls in the Non-Fiction section; have a browse and enjoy!
We will be rapidly expanding our Non-Fiction section to include interviews and reviews with some brilliant Scottish artists. If you are interested in writing for us just get in touch; we're open to all ideas and suggestions. firstname.lastname@example.org
