Write to us about Popular Wine Ratings And Reviews
We love getting new ideas and articles from people who haven't been published before (and those who have been!) We cannot promise to publish your article, but we do promise to read it carefully!
We work with our authors to ensure that the articles we publish are as good as we can make them. We very seldom publish an article in exactly the form in which it was submitted. If you need help or support, we will be pleased to offer both. Our advice is to send us a draft or an outline in the first instance, so that we can help you to develop your ideas. Sending an outline is also a good idea because it enables us to warn you if we already have several articles on the same subject waiting to be published, and are unlikely to accept another one.
New writers may wish to consider submitting shorter pieces to begin with. We are very pleased to receive letters and suggestions for publication. Good, innovative photocopiable materials are particularly welcome.
Please contact us before contributing to one of our regular features as these are generally commissioned by us and their content planned several issues in advance. Please write to us also if you have new ideas for regular features.
Articles should be a minimum from 700 to 1,200 words. Always try to back up your comments and ideas with practical descriptions or examples.
Think visual – pictures can lift a page, so do think about how your article could be illustrated. Whatever images you send over with your article, please confirm you own the copyright and provide the images as high-res jpeg's or png's, ideally 1MB +.
If you are using quotations, identify the sources; depending on their length, it may be necessary to obtain permission for them to be used, so please give full information.
If you quote references, give full information.
We do not accept articles or parts of articles which have been published elsewhere, and that it is not being considered by any other publication. If the article was published on our website You won't use the article again in another publication.
Please send your article to our editor, preferably as a Word document, and keep a copy for your own records.
If you do send anything by email attachment, please use your surname as part of the file name and include your name and address within the document.
Please do not embed photographs or any other artwork in Word documents sent by e-mail attachment. Send them as separate jpg attachments.
Please ensure that anything you send is free of viruses.
Please do not use the track changes tool on your computer and do not allow any of your colleagues who read and comment on your article to do so, as it can cause issues.
Please remember to put your name and full contact details, including postal address and telephone number, within the body of your article. Emails and articles often get separated and it is vital that your article is labeled clearly with your name and contact details.
If you are interested in publishing an article, or if you have an idea that you would like to discuss with us first, please reach out to us through our contact form or directly by email. We look forward to hearing from you!
