• Network News items – please keep short and to the point from just one line up to 300 words.
• Features – take up one page so a maximum word count of between 550 and 500 words.
• Reviews – 350 words – these can be reviews of books, DVDs and videos that you can recommend to others.
Where possible, please supply a couple of images as part of your submission. These should be of around 1MB in file size and be of a ‘high’ quality and large dimensions in order for it to replicate in print.
Please also accompany each image with a caption and photographer’s credit.
