You will see from the style the eNews consists largely of links.

Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have. 

Relevant job advertisements are welcome - there is no charge.
