Golf Monthly Always looking for off-beat stories - perhaps at local club level or from people who pick up golf-related stories in their local courts. However these local stories must be of national interest. A greenkeeper who has served 50 years, for instance, is only going to interest his local club unless he can talk about changes that have gone on during those 50 years. Write with an idea in the first instance. Contact: Jane Carter, Golf Monthly, IPC Media, 24th Floor, King's Reach Tower, Stamford Street, London SE1 9LS. Tel: 020-7261 7237; Website:

The Great War Magazine Actively looking for contributions and submissions to this quarterly subscription/mail order magazine, senior editor Mark Marsay is willing to consider 'all aspects on the Great War' with no sphere of interest precluded. From letters and prose to memoirs and histories, all submissions will be assessed and material will be judged on content and interest rather than the ability of the contributor to write well or to a professional standard. 'We will be particularly interested in personal stories and experiences, and in local history aspects often overlooked by other publications such as home front, pals and service soldiers; battalions, animals, women, grandparents' stories, etc. Photos and drawings are most welcome, especially if illustrating a text contribution. Nothing is precluded and submission is open to all.' Mark also hopes to include a book review feature and letters page within the magazine, and perhaps a small classified section for readers, historians, researchers and military and regimental museums, etc. Mark adds: 'It is important that prospective contributors contact us (stating where they read or heard about the magazine) to obtain our general submission guidelines before sending any material.'

Guide to Tea Rooms of Britain Don't want articles about individual tea rooms, because these appear in the guide, but interested in anything related to tea and tea rooms. For instance, the May issue carries an article about Clipper, the first tea company to be awarded the Fairtrade mark, and the August one features Twinings. Happy to consider poetry and even short stories up to a maximum of 600 words, though they must, of course, be relevant. Contact: Liz Mackenzie, Whitehill Publishing, PO Box 6279, Leicester LE3 OWE.

Editor: Nora Warner, 17-19 Buckingham Palace Road, London SW1W 0PT. Tel: 0207 834 6242. Fax: 0207 828 8317
