Editorials, letters or event details should be sent to the Editor (see contact details here).  Please remember to try and include a word-count for your articles.  If you have any news, opinions or events to tell us about, but don’t feel confident enough to write it yourself – we’ll do it for you!

Anything you’re interested in – we’re interested in.  Events, current affairs, film, book or music reviews – just let the Life know about it.  Please contact the Editor.

Deadline Dates for Editorial:

All items for inclusion should be with the Editor by 5.00pm on the deadline day.  We make every effort to publish letters and articles as received, but we reserve the right to edit where necessary.

We always endeavour to return photos etc., but we are unable to accept responsibility if this is not possible.  If submitting digital photos, please supply in jpeg or tiff formats if possible.  Those submitting photos of children (whether a hard copy or a digital copy) must provide written parental permission for publication.

No liability is accepted for incorrect data or information which may be contained in the Braunstone Life. The views and opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the Editor or the Committee Members of the Braunstone Life.

.Please remember to include a note of the number of words in your article.  The average word count is 250 – 300 words per article.

All Editorial deadlines are at 5.00pm on Friday evenings.
