Here are the guidelines:

Articles should be around 1200 words
They should be of a good grammatical standard
They should cover topics covering European parks, fairs and attractions
You can use your article to follow up on an article we have written

If you want to add an article, send an email with the subject line of 'open mic' to: marcus at

We accept Word documents, and if you want any photos, please say in your email how many you want to send. It might be preferable for you to upload these to an online photo account such as Photo Bucket.

So long as the article is relevant, interesting and adheres to the standards above, then we will publish it. We will always reply to emails with articles attached, even if to say no.
