Files should be presented in text or word format
Do not use styles or effects such as special fonts, headings, underlining etc as they will need to be converted.
Use left justified text with NO returns unless you want a paragraph break.
Paragraph breaks should be a new line with a single space on subsequent lines. These will be converted to a tab later.
Single spaces should be used in all cases, e.g. between words and after punctuation. Multiple spaces badly affect layout.
Capitals should be used for names but not for beer styles as follows:
Cameron’s Best Bitter is great bitter
Use CAMRA not Camra or camra.
Use the following format for money, time and date: £1.24, 8pm, 8.30pm, Saturday 21st September
If you use a spell checker, check that it is set to UK English and not US English (check with colour/color)
A common error is the use of the singular form for words such as brewery or company. Eg:
Of the two branch breweries, the Weatheroak brewery’s product range is larger.
Do not capitalise headings.
Be careful about libellous or defamatory remarks. Articles above 450 words are almost impossible to fit in and will either be split over two issues or dropped.
