Pictures and stories from Sampford Courtenay
Contributions from Sampford Courtenay residents can be found in the dropdown menus in Pictures & stories.
Writing for the website
We know that we have some budding (and fully mature!) writers in the parish. And we would be very interested in publishing their writing on this website. We are open to all contributions. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, observations on nature, opinion and comment – it's up to you.
It is worth bearing in mind that most readers scan websites; they don't read word by word. If your piece of writing is long, think about submitting an extract. We can link this to a download of the full piece, which people can print out for easier reading.
Art and craft
We would also love to display photos of local art and craft, such as painting, drawing, photography, textiles, pottery and stained glass. High-resolution images are not required.
Music, film and video
We have just introduced a Music, film & video section to showcase local creativity. There is only one contribution there at the moment but we would love to receive more! We can link to YouTube, Vimeo and Soundcloud.
If you would like to discuss a possible contribution to the website or would like further information, email Janice Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01837 82143.
Pictures with a story to tell
If you have good-quality photos of local people, places and events, we would love to hear from you. We are gathering a range of at-a-glance photos, past and present, for the Gallery and we're also creating a photographic history of the parish in the Pictures from the past section.
Don't worry too much about format. Prints, scans or copies of prints or digital photos are all acceptable, so long as they are reasonably sharp. We can scan and return prints immediately if necessary.
