- Events and notices
- Book and event reviews
- Comment and analysis

- Interviews with people
- Cultural reviews and criticism
Will I definitely get published?
If it’s line with what we stand for, probably. If we don’t think it’s ready to publish – we’ll let you know why and give you some pointers. To help you pitch your contribution correctly, here’s a list of dos and don’ts
- Make sure there is a connection to Leeds
- Be respectful
- Be original
- Be thoughtful
- Be accessible
- Use footnotes or hyperlinks
- Credit other people
- Include a one line bio that explains who you are
- Be rude or offensive
- Be boring
- Use jargon
- Go on – anything between 50 and 350 words is about right. If you want to write anything longer it’s probably worth emailing us first.
- Use other people’s photos
- Get personal about people you disagree with
