Writing for the Newsletter

Contributions, preferably of 500 words or fewer, would be appreciated by email: newsletter@oxfordquakers.org. Paper copy can be left in the Forty-Three pigeonhole at the Meeting House. Each deadline is printed on the first page of the previous issue, but ordinarily it’s the second-last Friday of the month. Submissions in need of substantial proofreading may not be published immediately; if it’s important that this doesn’t happen, please submit your article well before the deadline.

We encourage a range of composition, including but not limited to:

  • details of forthcoming lectures, workshops, courses, exhibitions, plays, films, and retreats
  • reviews of such events and of books and websites
  • articles on work you’re involved with in the wider world
  • your take on spiritual and religious issues of the day, or your questions for the Meeting
  • poetry and art work
