Guide to submissions

We at the News and Media Republic are keen for you to send us your musings, photos, and artwork for publication.

If you want to submit material to the PRSD, D+CFilm, Arts+Culture, or any of our publications, you may do so on the following terms and conditions.

Generally speaking, if you want to send us a story for publication, it needs to be around 350 words – or six to eight paragraphs. Anything longer than that is liable to bore the pants off the reader.

We don’t pay for submissions, except in very rare cases – we’re not made of money, y’know.

You own the copyright of anything you send us, but publication of any material will be at our sole discretion. We may cut, edit, crop or arrange your stuff as we see fit. Don’t worry too much though – we kinda know what we’re doing.

Furthermore, you grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide licence to republish any material you submit to us in any format, including without limitation print and electronic format.

You also warrant to us that any material you submit is your own original work and that you own the copyright and any other relevant rights.

If it isn’t your own work, you must have permission from the owner to send it to us. Be sure they’re aware they are granting us a non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to publish them any way and at any time we want in the News and Media Republic Ltd publications.

We’ll publish your name alongside your work. If you want to use a pseudonym, make sure you still send us your real details. Otherwise, it seems a bit suss.

Oh, and remember you’ll still own the copyright on your work so you can republish it wherever and whenever you wish.

But before you submit anything, please take a gander at our Community Guidelines

• We accept one-off submissions, but we are also keen to extend our number of regular contributors. If you think this is something for you, then drop us a line.
• And if you’ve got something to say, but you don’t know how to say it, get in touch – we may be able to help.
