Submit an article
We’re happy to look at submissions for content because, by nature, we are lazy sods and anything that means less unpaid work for us has got to be a boon. If you’d like to write something for WWM, there are a few guidelines to go by:
- Don’t rave about something you like. We’re not really here to recommend stuff.
- Have a reason for being critical.
- Try to make it as funny as possible.
- No discriminatory language unless you’re capable of employing recognisable irony and/or it’s contextually relevant.
- If you’re going to touch upon sensitive issues, it’s possible to be sensitive and funny without trying to be Ricky Gervais.
- Keep your grammar in check – jokes and incisive points can get lost in a wash of weird punctuation. One Minute Reviews are good – nice and succinct – a couple of paragraphs to make a fundamental point about something you’ve seen.
That’s it, really. As we’re trying to be as consistent as possible with our posts, try to be aware of ‘house-style’ (to use a horrible marketing word). And don’t be sad if an article’s rejected for any reason – the next one you send might well be used.
One final thing – topics to keep your hands off include:
- Horror films, generally
- Anything to do with Holby
- The Apprentice
- Dragons’ Den
Apart from that – it’s fair game.

– The ‘Hands Off List’ is subject to change – check back occasionally for amends.
– We’ll try to discuss any amends made to articles but, as nobody’s getting paid, there might be the odd change here and there.
