We want you to write for us. Are you an aspiring writer, journalist, or just someone with something to say?
We would like to start a blog on this site and we are open for contributions. You can submit one off pieces, or become a regular contributor. We don’t ask for any commitment, we welcome writing on all aspects of life in Cambridge, college related or otherwise.
You don’t have to be a student, you can be a member of the university, a former member of the university, a local resident of the city, a member of university staff. It doesn’t matter. As long as you have something to say. All we ask is that it’s well written, on a relevant topic and that it’s not spammy, defamatory or written in a way that is likely to get us sued!
We also ask that any content submitted for publication here is not also published in multiple other locations online.
You can submit anonymous pieces, or get full credit as the author – please let us know which you prefer. We are also happy to link back to your own blog/website/youtube channel/whatever as relevant. Yep, that’s right, we are happy for you to use it for self-promotion (just not overtly blatant self-promotion!).
Obviously we reserve the right of full editorial control over anything that we publish and we will need to fact check submissions as appropriate.
If you would like to discuss this in more detail, please get in touch, at the moment the best way is via our twitter account @thecolleges – we will be adding other mechanisms soon.
We acknowledge that this site is still very much a work in progress but why not join us on that journey and help shape the future of it, whilst getting your work published.
A picture is worth a thousand words
We also welcome photographic submissions for use both here and on our Instagram account cambridgecolleges We will also provide full credit for these. If a picture is worth that many words, we have no idea how valuable a video would be worth (maybe 10000 words?) but if you are creating video content and would like to share any of that via this site then please let us know.
