Submission guidelines

The purpose of the newsletter is to inform, inspire, and entertain the Penshurst community and other
interested readers.

Due to challenges to publishers from the shifting boundaries of the laws of privacy, publicity, and libel,
the Penshurst Progress Association Inc (as the publisher of 'Mt Rouse News & Views Community Newsletter') is
required to provide the list of requirements and guidelines for submissions of articles to the newsletter.

SUBMISSION Please submit your contributions electronically to 'The Editor' at Article Submission

Articles are generally no more than 1000 words although longer articles may be published at the editor's
discretion. Please submit your contribution along with your article's title, your name, pictures or public
domain graphics, and a four to five sentence bio introducing yourself and/or your business/trade/ or organisation.

Articles must be in Microsoft Word format. Black and white or colour images should be photo quality (300 dpi or better) in jpeg format. If you have submitted the article elsewhere, please let us know. You are responsible for letting the other publisher know that you also submitted the article to us.

The Newsletter committee reserves the right to accept or reject any submissions at its discretion without
notification. Copyright remains the property of the submitter.

All articles are subject to editing for length, style, punctuation, and grammar. We will make every effort not to
change the theme or intent of the article. A combined effort on your part to check your own grammar and spelling
will help ensure drastic editing is not required. Publishers can be sued for publishing false and defamatory
statements and even just embarrassing private facts about individuals. More and more in our highly proprietary
and litigious age, references to individuals, living or deceased, bring claims of defamation, breach of privacy,
or violation of publicity rights. All articles will therefore be scanned for issues that may create legal problems.

INDEMNIFICATION All submissions are accepted and published on the representation that the submitter is authorised to publish the entire contents and subject matter therein. The submitter agrees to indemnify and hold Penshurst Progress Association Inc - Mt Rouse News & Views Community Newsletter and its agents harmless from any and all liability, demands or damages arising out of the submission. Such indemnity includes the provision of a defence to any actions or claims and the payment of costs and attorneys’ fees in connection therewith.

DEADLINE Each fortnightly issue:

Our goal is to have a fortnightly newsletter released by Wednesday morning
of the publishing week, so we require your articles
by the Saturday prior to issue. Thank you.
