Submission Deadlines for the Chronicle in 2017

We publish six issues of the Chronicle every year, aiming to have each new issue out as close as possible

to the 1 st of the month in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

In order to allow time for editing, layout, and printing, the deadline for submissions for each issue has

to be at least a week earlier. To simplify matters, the deadline day is always on a Friday, and each issue

is then finalised over the following weekend.

Many contributors want to coordinate the organisation of events to fit in with our publication dates, to

facilitate pre-publicity for things that are coming up, and reporting on things that have happened.

So here are the deadline dates for 2017 – obviously, submitting before these cut-off dates is preferred,

but these are the latest dates when we can guarantee that content will be included.

For the Spring edition (covering April/May): 24 th March

For the Summer edition (covering June/July): 19 th May

For the Harvest edition (covering August/September): 21 st July

For the Autumn edition (covering October/November): 22 nd September

For the Christmas edition (covering December/January): 17 th November
