Guidelines for writing submissions to the College’s eNewsletter


 

1.   Deadline - Content must be submitted to the Director of Strategic Communications no later than the 15th of the month preceding publication (i.e. 15 January for the February eNewsletter). Submissions received on the 16th or later will be considered for the subsequent edition.

 

2.   Length - Except for the invited leader article, all submissions should be less than 150 words. Longer submissions will be edited down to 150 words at the Editor’s discretion and may not be returned to the author for approval. 

 

3.   Linking - Where possible and relevant, submissions should contain links to other web pages. These may be external sites or to other pages on the College’s site, but preference should be given to linking to other pages on the College’s site. This will encourage readers to ‘stick’ to the College’s website before ‘bouncing’ elsewhere.

 

4.   Subsidiary pages - When lengthy items cannot be condensed (e.g. list of new Fellows), these should be created on a separate web page or pdf.  The eNewsletter item should simply read: ‘Fellowships awarded this month', with the link hidden behind the text..

 

5.   Images - We encourage the inclusion of images (except animated gifs), but please ensure that written consent has been given from anyone whose image you plan to use on the site.  If you have an idea for a picture, but no actual image, make this clear with your submission and the website team may be able to source a royalty-free image.
