Write for John Fox

Anyone can write for John Fox, all we ask is that it is relevant to the period and is a contribution to our understanding of life in Britain during the 17th century or how to re-enact it. Any relevant content is welcome.

What to write for John Fox

The primary topic 17th Century living history. We take a broad view of that, anything potentially relevant to that is likely to be accepted. This could include an analysis of the causes of a civil war, an overview of what happened, a biography of a key person, an account of a key event, or some other facet of history from the period. We also like reviews of books, movies and TV programmes about or set in the 17th century. It helps us to know what is worth reading or watching.

If in doubt have a browse and see what has already been published. If that doesn’t help enough then please ask (see form below).

What we want is:

  • your own work, we cannot publish anything that has been plagiarised
  • work that shows its references and sources (so that others can go find out more if they are interested, and to acknowledge where you have built on the work of others)

How to write for John Fox

There are two options for members to get material on the blog.

1. If you are happy to use wordpress you can have an account as a contributor, which allows you to draft the post yourself and it will be reviewed before it is published (so we can tidy up formatting, add links, tags and pictures).

2. You can contact us to put the material online for you. I’ll automatically create a contributor account for people so that the posts have the correct author attribution, but you don’t need to login and write your own if you don’t want to.
