How do I get something in the magazine?
We value the views and opinions of readers and encourage submissions and contributions from all sectors of the community.
We are always on the lookout for stories about people in the area, celebrating achievements as well as signposting to services and opportunities. Please provide approx. 150 words of copy including details of who, when, where, why, what and how much. And include a lovely hi res image with a caption saying who is in the picture. We want to feature as many smiley faces in the magazine as possible. We love to see real people doing real things. There is no cost to you if we include your stories etc. in the magazine.
In addition to the newsy stuff, if you want to send in any recipes, puzzles, pictures or reviews for the regular platforms then please do so – we also welcome any new ideas for features or platforms that would add something extra.
Please note that although we will try and feature as many articles as we can, space is obviously limited, and we cannot feature everything. If your article follows the guidelines listed above AND includes a picture it has more chance of getting in. Articles received after deadline may not be accepted. Inclusion is subject to availability and is at the discretion of the editor.
Can I pay for advertising?
Yes. The magazine is not for profit and the advertising goes towards printing and distribution costs.
