If you are interested in writing a guest post for thinkingcountry please drop me an email. I welcome contributions from anyone with an interest in the broad themes of conservation, the environment, food and farming, environmental history or resilient communities. I would be particularly interested in hearing from you if you would like to write about the connections between conservation and farming or a place or community that is special to you. Thinkingcountry is intended to be an open platform for anyone with an interest in food, farming, the countryside, the environment and conservation to air their views.
If you would like me to write a guest post on your own blog please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am generally always willing to put pen to paper and can fit most briefs if requested!

Notes for Guest Blog Contributors
There is no set word limit for guest post contributions although I find that posts of between 400 and 600 words work best. If you would like to offer a longer, more detailed post just let me know. Please send your contribution to me as a .doc or .docx attachment and send me any images you wish to use (along with a note on who to credit) separately. Please also include a brief biography of yourself that can be published alongside the guest post. Thank you very much for writing for thinkingcountry!
