We will publish a photo and profile along with your first accepted item and if you write regularly for us, you will feature in our staff and writers index.

Some of our intended regular items include:

  • Local news items
  • Current affairs
  • Opinion pieces
  • Profile pieces
  • Environmental/ecological items
  • Health and well being
