Contributions

CMCI@King’s welcomes submissions for blog posts from authors from the CMCI department who would like to write about their academic research and activities. We are an informal and friendly editorial team and are happy to discuss ideas for your posts.  Please email us at cmci-microsite@kcl.ac.uk if you want to discuss your ideas.

We are interested in contributions that discuss any aspect of media, cultural production and the creative industries, including digital media, popular culture, music, visual arts, literature, theatre, and cinema.

Posts should be written and researched to a high standard, but suitable for a general reader. Above all else, posts should be personal, reflective and future-looking.

Submissions usually fall into the following categories:

  • Opinion pieces and reflections on contemporary issues or research in media and cultural production.
  • Interviews and conversations.
  • Posts inspired by conferences or reading groups you are organising or are attending, or creative projects you are involved in especially those that have received funding from the College.
  • Research and works in progress are very welcome as well as more crystallized ideas.

Style Guide

Length

CMCI@King’s contributions usually fall into the following three categories:

  • General posts: opinion pieces and reflections on contemporary issues or research in culture, media and the creative industries. 500-1000 words.
  • Reviews: 500-1000 words.
  • Interviews: up to 2000 words, more under exceptional circumstances.

Structure

Posts don’t need an argumentative structure, introduction or conclusion. They can be a meditation, a conversation, or a story.

References

  • You do not need to use in-text references or endnotes in your submission. Readers aren’t expected to follow up on research outside of your post, so make sure that it contains everything they need to appreciate what you are saying.
  • Instead of references, we suggest you use hyperlinks to direct readers to other online sources (articles, media, events and so on) and create an online conversation.
