Why Write for Our Blog?

Our blog is open to everyone. Writing for our blog provides a unique opportunity to share your thoughts and expertise on resilience to a diverse audience. By contributing to our blog, you can inspire and encourage collaboration, float ideas or comment on subjects. Writing can help you to refine your ideas and broaden your professional network. Our blog provides a chance to showcase your knowledge and contribute to the national dialogue on resilience. In addition to this every blog featured on our website will be shared with our network of newsletter subscribers across the UK. 

Style

  • Title – please ensure your post is appropriately titled.
  • Between 500-700 words (where relevant, reference published supporting material to save on words and open access material is best).
  • Provide web links in full (so that anyone reading offline can type in the address and find the site).
  • Graphs, charts and pictures are all welcome and encouraged (in jpeg format).
  • British English.
  • Remember you are writing for a diverse audience, avoid jargon, specialist terminology and acronyms.
  • Your name, job title and organisation will be published alongside your post. If you are submitting work on behalf of someone else, please specify the details to be published with the post. 

Purpose

  • A discussion piece around resilience – particularly, but not exclusively, resilience to natural hazards.
  • To be thought-provoking and potentially encourage collaboration.

We are very happy to discuss thoughts and ideas for blog pieces. If you have any question and would like to speak to a member of the Team, please contact us.
