    • We have no set minimum or maximum length for submissions but do not usually accept articles with a word count of greater than 2,950 words (approx 4 pages with one image). Approximate guidance for article submission word count would be between 1,000 and 2,950 words.
    • Submissions do not have to be technically perfect. We are happy to help you in producing a finished article.
    • We prefer to have articles sent via email. Please send as a Microsoft word document. You may also send work by post.

    • Please do not send us original work by post as we cannot promise to return it.
    • We may edit your article and will aim to approve this with you first before publishing.
    • We are sorry but we are unable to pay for submissions. We will however send you a free copy of the edition of the magazine your article features in.

Reviews can be on events, places of interest, books, films etc. You may submit reviews on your own events, books etc but please be honest in stating that this is the case.
