The deadline for contributions for the next quarterly newsletter is 30 September 2021.

Contributions are published on the website as soon as they’re reviewed by the editorial team, and are considered for inclusion in the quarterly newsletter as long as they arrive before the deadline.

If you’re submitting contributions for the Blog, please read our guidelines below.

Guidelines for Blog Contributions

  • Word count for blog contributions is 800-2000 words.
  • If you refer to particular films, please do so in the following format: ‘Film title’ (director, year of production). If the film is available online or has a website that is known to you, please also provide the link to this website within the brackets.
  • If you make references to articles, books etc, please also provide the bibliographical reference for these at the end of the text, in the Harvard citation style. We recommend using the extensive guide produced by Anglia Ruskin University, which offers guidance across a huge range of resources, media, and materials. The guide is available here
  • Please also provide a high-resolution profile picture of yours.
  • If you wish to include film-stills from (some of) the films you are making reference to or other pictures, please send these to us as separate attachments and please approximately indicate where media images should come in the text. Please use ‘Figure X’ in your in-text indications, and label your media files to correspond to this. For example: In-text indication: Figure 1 (caption); File name: Surname_Figure 1.jpg. If you are including film-stills, please also always mention the film details in the caption.
