Got something to say?


help is at handWant to get an opinion off your chest, start a debate, or let others know of a great free resource that you've found? Even if you're not a writer, you could record a short video or audio file. Or perhaps you'd like to get really involved and become a community advocate? Here's how to take part in the great community.

Debate & blogs:

Ten top tips:

In my opinion:
Want to write a longer review of a current event? Or do you have a strong opinion that you want to put online? Please get in touch first, but our guide length is around 900 words. All copy should be exclusive to Contact Susie Finch at [email protected]

Audio files:
Some people prefer speaking to writing, so we'd also like to encourage members to record audio files and videos that we could use on site – go on, don't be shy! If this is something that you'd like to try then email [email protected]

Spotlights & profiles:

We are mainly a feature-led website, but press releases on our core subjects only please (see below) should be sent to [email protected]

Community advocates:
If you want to get really involved, then you could consider becoming a community advocate - someone who is at the hub of a particular section, or location, within the industry. We could give you your own page on site for your 'group' to use for copy and networking. This is a new idea, but if you think that it is something that you would like to try, then please get in touch by emailing [email protected]
