If you've written something and would like to see it on durbanscouts.za.net, please send it to us! Remember we prefer articles to be somehow connected to the city, which includes writing about an unrelated subject from a Durbanite's perspective.
Please look through all the past work to get an idea of the kind of articles that are suitable. And remember we bend the rules for members that have contributed relevant articles in the past, so you'll have to stick around a bit before we let you go off on a tangent! Attach your photos too, or else go get some from the internet that we can use alongside the article. If you're fussy about how it's layed out, you're welcome to specify where the photos should be placed and how much of the article appears as a teaser.
If you've got an event for the calendar / gig guide, send as much info as possible!
If you want your gig/event on the front page as well as the calendar, you're gonna have to put some effort into an article! Give us background info on artists, pictures of the venue, anything, just make it special and interesting to our members. Sending us the same press release that you're sending to every paper in Durban without any pics is not enough (unless it's a truly amazing event, in which case someone else will write a personal recommendation for the front page). Writing a unique article which is on a personal level with our readers, and including nice pretty pics and a competition, is a sure-fire way to get to the front page. Reviews are also great!
Oh yeah one last thing, please include your login name in the email, so we know who to credit the article to!
