Blog policy

2015 08 19 LW v1 Draft logo 1Contributors to this site are able to post anonymously, but any blog you submit must be your own work, not someone else’s, and we may take steps to verify this before publication. In some circumstances (for instance, where specific details such as names or dates are included) we sometimes may also seek to verify certain information.

We reserve the right to edit content in order to correct typos, clarify anything that isn’t clear, or ensure that anonymity is preserved.

If you have a blog or even just a case study that you’d like us to post, please fill in the form on the Write a Blog page.

If you are at all concerned about your safety and anonymity when submitting a blog, then do get in touch with us to discuss it. You can also read our Stay Safe Online page.
