Are you an aspiring writer, journalist, or just someone with something to say?
If you are then we would like to invite you to write for us.
In addition to our blog on this site we are developing pages about attractions and locations around the Cotswolds and we are open for contributions and guest posts.
You can submit one off pieces, or become a regular contributor. We don’t ask for any commitment and we welcome writing on all aspects of life in the Cotswolds, from various perspectives.
You don’t have to be a resident, but you’re not excluded if you are. You can be a business owner, or working on behalf of a business, or be someone who has visited and been inspired by the beauty of the surroundings.
As long as you have something to say. All we ask is that it’s well written, on a relevant topic and that it’s not spammy, defamatory or written in a way that is likely to get us sued!
Cotswolds related content
Judging by some of the recent requests we’ve had, it seems that relevant isn’t obvious. Let’s clarify what we mean by that. This is a website about the Cotswolds and surrounding areas.
Please don’t waste our time and yours by trying to get us to publish something completely unrelated to the topic of this site. We will just mark your email as spam and delete it if you do that.
We also ask that any content submitted for publication here is unique and not also published in multiple other locations on-line.
You can submit anonymous pieces, or get full credit as the author – please let us know which you prefer. We are also happy to link back to your own blog/website/youtube channel/whatever as relevant.
Yep, that’s right, we are happy for you to use it for self-promotion (just not overtly blatant self-promotion!).
Provided what you write is of value and interest. Please don’t send us a pure marketing piece and expect it to get published.
Obviously we reserve the right of full editorial control over anything that we publish and we will need to fact check submissions as appropriate.
If you would like to discuss this in more detail, please get in touch, at the moment the best way is via our twitter account @visit_cotswolds or emailing us – hello at discovercotswolds.co.uk
We acknowledge that this site is still very much a work in progress but why not join us on that journey and help shape the future of it, whilst getting your work published.
A picture is worth a thousand words
We also welcome photographic submissions for use both here and on our Instagram account discovercotswolds (if you follow us there you will see lots of submissions that we’ve already published).
📸 Tag to feature
We will also provide full credit for these. You can tag us, use the hashtag discovercotswolds or add us as a collaborator. We prefer images that are 5×4 format, not landscape or square and the focus should be on the Cotswolds, not a person or people.
If a picture is worth that many words, we have no idea how valuable a video would be worth (maybe 10000 words?) but if you are creating video content and would like to share any of that via this site then please let us know.
