Submission Guidelines for CSO
Enthuse about the subject (either way, good or bad). Draw the reader in. Make them want to watch it too (for good or bad).
You can write about any of your favourite Cult TV shows, no matter where they have originated from. We love Doctor Who, Blake’s 7, Sapphire and Steel, The Prisoner, Hammer House of Horror, Space 1999, Star Fleet etc. and we’d like to cover Comedy shows too like The Mighty Boosh and Garth Marenghi. All we ask from you is that you write passionately and seriously about the subject and where possible write with a view to promoting it to someone who may never have heard of it before and will likely do so (or not if it’s terrible) on the strength of your article. You can write about any aspect of your chosen show, whether it is praise, criticism, anecdotes from the production team and you can be as detailed as you wish.
Here is a short list of suggested material:-
Series introduction/history/future
Series Reviews
Episode Guides
Interviews with the production crew and actors
Fan Fiction
Comic strips
Convention News and Interviews
Letters pages
Please aim to write at least two pages of text for your articles and avoid any colourful metaphors where possible. When submitting text, please where possible, supply in Microsoft Word .doc .txt format and avoid using any tabs and excessive spaces to bring words over to the next line. Please use a carriage return for this. All text will be reformatted for publication and adhering to this will mean a quicker turnaround for the fanzine. Don’t forget to read over your article when finished and to check grammar and spelling. There is nothing worse than seeing a mistake in your work when it’s printed.
Where possible, please supply any illustrations/comic strips sized to A4 (210mm wide x 297mm deep) and with a resolution of 300DPI (Dots per inch). Preferably, as CMYK but RGB colour and Greyscale is accepted. The following file formats are suggested .jpg .tif .psd.

If you do not have access to a scanner or a digital camera, we can accept original hard copy prints but please bear in mind there is a risk involved in posting these. Where possible, if you have a DVD and are able to capture screenshots using popular software such as VLC or even by pressing the PrtScn button and pasting the resulting screen capture into Microsoft Paint, please feel free to do so, if this helps to highlight any points you are making in the article. When naming your files, where possible use names that are relevant to the picture and include the names of any characters featured.
Colour printing is very expensive for any publication. If you would like to donate any funds to help us to continue, we can make some accommodation for advertising for you. The fanzine is strictly a non-profit making publication and no staff are paid for their work. As a non professional, fan produced publication, we cannot afford to pay for any material submitted.
As a thank you for your support, you will receive a contributor copy of the fanzine (only if you have supplied a feature article) when completed and hopefully a wide varied readership which may open doors for you to paying work. Please supply your full name and address with your submission in order to receive a copy.
