Invitation for articles

The Winkfield Parish News is almost entirely based on articles written by local people, about local events, or generally, that, are of interest to other local people. All contributions are welcomed – particularly about what involves you so much that that you would like to share it! We will normally publish interesting articles that follow the guidelines, but the editors always reserve the right to curtail or delay submissions. We are always ready to give guidance and advice. Write by email to the editors, Mr and Mrs Anthony Hodson at and always put ‘parish mag’ somewhere in the Subject field for any message to do with the Winkfield Parish News (AKA ‘the parish mag’).

Production of the Parish Mag

Articles or other text for publication are welcome from anybody; they may be on church or other subjects (which are lightly limited by the published Editorial Policy).

Click the button above to see the Parish Mag Editorial Policy - last saved 14/1/19, Articles (etc.) should normally be kept to less than 400 words, except after consultation with the editors, who also reserve the standard editorial right to adjust, re-punctuate and if necessary cut text, without losing the intent of the article.

Authors will be able to review changes in the 'draft for comment' that is circulated before finalising the artwork.

The editors invite submission of comments by email, and reserve the right to publish, or not publish, this material.

The deadline for articles in each magazine is normally the 10th of each month in which the magazine is prepared for the following month. However, during the pandemic, the deadlines are amended (see below).

Frequency of the Parish Mag

The plan is that the Winkfield Parish News will change name and front cover to represent all three churches, and will be published bimonthly with contributions of plans, news and articles from all the congregations. There may be small adjustments to the editorial policy. HOWEVER, PLANS ARE NOT YET IN PLACE SO WE WILL CONTINUE MONTHLY AS AT PRESENT.

Ownership and Management of the Parish Mag

The Winkfield Parish News belongs to and supports the Winkfield Parish directly, and is managed by the PCC. It is not a publication of the Friends of St Mary's Winkfield, although the Friends sponsor the Parish Mag by hosting the online Winkfield Parish News on own webpage .

The Friends also publish related advertising, on its own webpage - the Friends do not receive funding for this, and all paid advertising revenues go into the PCC account without involving the Friends.

The management of the Parish News, of advertising and revenue from advertising is the responsibility of the PCC, and not of the editors, nor of the Friends. It is the PCC that is responsible for setting advertising rates, and for recovering resulting revenue.
