Getting stuff published in the magazine...
Submitting articles for publication in The Bridge magazine
Please submit your articles by email if at all possible — don't worry if you can't, just write it out (legibly!) and drop it off at either Acres Supply (Corsley) or Barters Plant Centre (Chapmanslade). If you're submitting a Microsoft Word file, please save it as a .doc and NOT .docx as I sometimes have trouble opening them! If you have pictures to accompany your article, please send them as separate attachments in your email (i.e. not embedded in your MS Word file as it's very time consuming to get them out again!). If you'd like me to include a photograph and you only have a print, please make sure that you wrap it up securely with some sturdy cardboard (not forgetting to put a return address on the envelope!) before dropping of at either of the garden centres - I will scan it for you and return it by post.
