We’d be delighted to receive your own submissions and consider them for publication. You might like to choose one of our regular features to write for, or maybe you just have an idea of your own.

Regular Features:

PinPointer: An anonymous, provocative piece with the purpose of stimulating debate.

Letters: Ask a question, reply to a previous letter or respond to an article

GeoPets: Do you have a cool dog or a crazy cat which loves to go geocaching with you? Let’s hear all about their animal obsession- and don’t forget to send a pic or two!

Diary of a cacher: Keep a note of all your geo-activity for a month- walks, camps, maintenance runs, events, puzzle solving…anything!

GeoTech: Are you a bit of a geek? Have a techie skill or technique to share?

A Muggle Writes…: Do you have a muggle friend that you drag around with you? A partner on the fringes of the game perhaps?

International: Although this is a UK-based magazine, there will be an international element to each issue. Whether you have a geocaching experience from your travels, or you live overseas, we’d love to hear from you!

If you have something you’d like to share which doesn’t fit any of these features, that’s fine; there’s plenty of space in these pages! Just send us a short description of your idea, and if we think it’s a goer, we’ll let you know!
