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).Note that in 2020 the magazine was changed officially to bi-monthly to ease the load on the kind people who deliver the printed magazine, but because the pandemic prevented physical delivery, and also because government regulations created an impossibility to plan two and a half months ahead, we reverted, for the time being, to monthly publication, mainly using this web-page, with a small number of printed copies, primarily for those unable to handle the web edition.
We await a decision about when (if ever) to revert back to bimonthly. We propose that monthly publication will stop with the September edition, unless a decision is made to do otherwise.
This means that Service Information provided in September for the October edition would be for both October and November.
