Our newsletter GHS news is currently published twice a year (at the beginning of March and September), and contains a mixture of news, details of our (and other people’s) events, members’ views and less formal articles. It has 40 pages and is printed in full colour, using soya based ink, recycled, carbon balanced paper and biodegradable mailing film.
The newsletter is available to members but a selection of older and current issues are available below. This is now supplemented by a micro-news which is sent out with our twice yearly journal, in May and December.
Contribute to GHS news
Charles Boot, the editor, is keen to receive news items and articles; international news is particularly welcome. The deadline for the next issue appears on the final page of the last issue so get any suitable information and/or articles to him as soon as possible; current deadlines are at the end of January and July. The micro-news goes out with the journal at the end of May and November; deadlines are mid-April, mid-October.
Submissions in most popular formats are welcomed or, better, in RTF, as email attachments to the editor. If you have illustrations please send as .jpegs or .tiffs, keeping in mind our page size (maximum width 150mm) and that we need colour images at 300dpi (4mb max). A suggested word count for the agenda section is from 400 to 1000 words (maximum, especially if you have included pictures), our forum section is for short items of up to 200 words. Have a look at the editions below for the sort of thing we are looking for, though we hope that all sorts of subjects to come up.
